Match Preview

Dargo doubtful for Jags Partick Thistle's recent signing Craig Dargo is a fitness doubt for the Firhill meeting with Queen of the South after picking up a knock in the defeat from Raith Rovers last weekend. Winger Christie Elliot as another doubt and Jonny Lindsay, Willie Kinniburgh and Ryan Macbeth have all been ruled out with injuries, however Iain Flannigan and Stephen O'Donnell are available after knocks. Jags boss Jackie McNamara said: "Both ourselves and Queen of the South go into this game after disappointing defeats and will be going all out to win our last game of 2011. " Our performance against Raith was good but we need to be more prepared to have a shot when we get close to an opponent's goal than we have been." Queen of the South welcome back young midfielder Kevin Holt to their squad after he served a one game ban against Falkirk last Saturday. Dumfries manager Gus McPherson is hoping to have everyone available for their trip to Glasgow with the only injury seen at Palmerston this week being to pride following their 5-1 home defeat from the Bairns. McPherson said: "The extra couple of days before the game should see everyone available with the players determined to make up for last week. "Their pride was severely dented but we have a good spirit in the squad and that will help us bounce back against Thistle."

Match Report

Doolan gives Thistle cutting edge A Kris Doolan header decided a cagey encounter as Partick earned a 1-0 victory over First Division rivals Queen of the South. Partick goalkeeper Scott Fox was called into action inside a minute, tipping over Kevin Smith's bullet header after a quick break from the centre circle. The Jags settled into a good rhythm and were unlucky not to take any advantage into the break, as both Aaron Sinclair and Conrad Balatoni spurned clear-cut chances to score. It was Doolan who finally broke the deadlock two minutes after the interval. Lee Robinson could only parry Sinclair's powerful free-kick and Paul Cairney chipped in for Doolan to nod home. The Doonhamers threatened a response with 20 minutes remaining when Ryan McGuffie rose to meet Scott McLaughlin's swerving cross, but his headed effort was wayward. Craig Reid then blasted at Jags stopper Fox from distance, but the shot was easily saved as the hosts secured victory.
