Morton hope for Young stay
Partick will be without on-loan defender Conrad Balatoni and striker Kris Doolan for the visit of Morton.
Balatoni has a hamstring injury and Doolan is nursing a groin problem. They join midfielder Ryan McBeth on the sidelines.
However, Simon Donnelly is available again after a back injury while captain Alan Archibald and David Rowson could also return if they come through fitness tests.
Meanwhile, Martin Hardie picked up a knock against Dundee last weekend and has returned to St Johnstone with his loan deal due to expire next week.
Morton hope to extend Darren Young`s stay at the club before the trip.
The midfielder is in talks over a short-term deal after impressing during a three-game spell as a trialist.
Midfielder Fouad Bachirou looks set to miss out again through injury, while striker Stewart Kean is struggling with a finger problem.
Manager Allan Moore is looking for his men to build on a fine win over Dunfermline last weekend.
He said: "It would be great to have Darren on board as he has great experience, but whilst it was great to win last week we need to keep going and put more points on board to start climbing the table.
"Both Thistle and ourselves have picked up recently so it should be a good contest."
Thistle frustrated in stalemate
Struggling Partick remain second from bottom in the table after being held to a goalless draw at home to Morton.
Martin Grehan went closest for Thistle in the first half when his early curling shot from the edge of the penalty area was tipped away at full stretch by Morton goalkeeper Colin Stewart.
The visitors threatened to break the deadlock just before the interval, but Michael Tidser's 25-yard free-kick was well saved by Partick goalkeeper Scott Fox.
Chances were at a premium in a dour second period. Substitute Chris Erskine's mis-hit shot for the home side flew wide, while Patrick Boyle's effort from similar distance was blocked.
Boyle also volleyed wide in the closing stages for the hosts, and Paul Paton headed Iain Flannigan's corner just over the crossbar in time added on.
