Match Preview

Eight missing for Thistle Partick's interim manager Jackie McNamara has selection worries for the visit of a Morton side his men have yet to beat this season. Midfielder David Rowson is suspended following his red card in midweek against Falkirk and he will join the injured Simon Donnelly, Ryan MacBeth, Iain Flannigan, John Robertson, Bryan Hodge, Paul Paton and Colin Stevenson on the sidelines. McNamara said: "I have had a draw and a defeat since I came in and it would be great to get a win now and complete the set. "I have taken training all week now and while we are short of numbers we will go out and give it a real go and hopefully get that win over Morton." Morton are again without the attacking duo of Kevin Kelbie and Sean Fitzharris. Manager Allan Moore is waiting on the fitness of full-back Kevin McKinlay and midfielder Fouad Bachirou before finalising his team. Moore said: "Our record against Thistle has been good all season and I want that to continue. "We have the chance to finish in fourth place in the table and a win at Firhill helps us get even closer to that. Fourth place would represent an improvement for Morton on previous seasons and I want us to achieve that. "I am determined that things do not peter out and so should the players be as there are contracts on offer."

Match Report

Thistle sting Morton Partick inflicted a 2-0 defeat on Morton in a mid-table clash at the Firhill Stadium. With both teams safe from relegation and promotion out of sight, Thistle took the opportunity to enjoy a home victory with two second-half goals. A scruffy opening first 45 minutes saw little goalmouth action, but Paul Cairney had the best chance for the hosts when he sent a shot into the grateful hands of Colin Stewart. Morton struggled to impose themselves on the clash and Derek Lyle's tame effort was the best they had to offer. The Jags seized the initiative when Jamie Campbell played in Chris Erskine on the hour to plunder a smart finish from 25 yards. Patrick Boyle then sealed the win 12 minutes later when he slotted in Martin Grehan's pull-back from the right channel.
