Thistle duo return
Partick welcome back Conrad Balatoni and Kal Naismith after injury as they look to end Ross County's unbeaten run that stretches all the way back to the second game of the season.
Darren Cole continues to sit out through injury and suspension denies the Jags the services of Aaron Sinclair and Scott Robertson, with Stuart Bannigan brought in to provide defensive cover.
Manager Jackie McNamara is waiting on news on the fitness of goalkeeper Scott Fox, however deputy Ryan Scully may keep his place after a fine display in the 5-0 win over Queen of the South last weekend.
The Firhill boss said: "It will not be easy to defeat County as they are doing really well but we want to finish the season strongly."
County are boosted by the return of winger Iain Vigurs from suspension.
The only player unavailable to manager Derek Adams is former Scotland defender David McNamee, who remains out with a broken wrist.
Despite holding a commanding 15-point lead at the top of the division with eight games to play, Adams is focusing solidly on Partick.
He said: "Thistle are always difficult opponents, particularly at Firhill. This is just another opportunity to gain three points and we will adopt the same approach that we have all season, and that is sticking to things one game at a time.
"They will be coming into this game on a high after a fine five-goal win at Queen of the South last weekend, so we are well warned about how difficult this game will be."
