Match Preview

Jags without injured duo Partick Thistle will be without the long-term injured pair of Scott Robertson and Willie Kinniburgh as they welcome First Division leaders Morton. Midfielder Iain Flannigan is a doubt with a back injury and striker Kris Doolan could miss out because of illness. Firhill manager Jackie McNamara said: "This is a great game for us to show what we can do against a good Morton side. "We may have lost at Livingston last week but we put in a good performance and if we play like that again, and a get a break in front of goal, this is a game we can win." Morton striker Paul Di Giacomo returns following a back injury, however midfielder Michael Tidser will miss out because of a knock to his knee. Manager Allan Moore will make a late check on David O'Brien, who has been ill this week, with the Cappielow boss hoping that central defender Stuart McCafferty overcomes a heel problem in time to feature. Moore said: "I do not like chopping and changing our defence too much so I would like to have Stuart available. "I ask the players to win the home games and take something from the away ones. If we win I will have a great weekend, as we will head into the international break at the top of the league."

Match Report

Jags maul miserable Morton Stephen O'Donnell scored one and provided another as Partick dispatched ten-man Morton 5-0 in an experimental Friday night fixture. O'Donnell opened the scoring for the Jags in the third minute, bursting into the box and coolly slotting past Colin Stewart. The former Celtic trainee would then turn creator for the Glasgow side's second. After dispossessing Morton defender Ross Forsyth, he fired an inch-perfect low ball across the face of goal for a grateful Kris Doolan to slot home. The hosts added a third with 15 minutes remaining. Ton defender Andy Graham saw red for handling a long ball forward, only for Christie Elliott to clip home with ease as the resulting free-kick bounced off the wall. Chris Erskine connected with Aaron Sinclair's driven cross in the final stages to stub home a fourth goal against the depleted Renfrewshire side, before Thomas Stewart stroked a well-taken fifth beyond his beleaguered namesake from 18 yards.
