County still without injured duo
Ross County are again without David McNamee and Marc Fitzpatrick through injury as they look to defeat Partick and open up a nine-point gap on second-placed Falkirk with one game still in hand.
Manager Derek Adams has no interest of looking any further forward than Partick.
He said: "There is still a third of the season to go so there is no point in getting excited. We will take things one game at a time as we have all season.
"We have drawn 2-2 and beaten Thistle 1-0 so there has not been much between us all season. I have a lot of respect for them and we are in the middle of a really demanding schedule so it will be a difficult contest."
Partick winger Chris Erskine has shaken off a back injury and will head north in manager Jackie McNamara's squad.
Erskine featured prominently in their 2-0 success over Hamilton at the weekend.
The Jags are, however, without Paul Paton through suspension with injuries ruling out Sean Welsh, Darren Cole and Kris Doolan.
McNamara said: "Ross County are obviously having a great season and they have a good squad full of experienced players but we will give it a real go.
"I was delighted with how we played against Hamilton but I am now looking for consistency in our results. We are fourth but I want us to climb higher between now and the end of the season."
Staggies win again
League leaders Ross County extended their advantage at the top with a 3-0 win over Partick.
The hosts took the lead on the half-hour mark when Colin McMenamin rose highest to head home Gary Miller's cross.
And the advantage was doubled six minutes later courtesy of a fine free-kick by Iain Vigurs from distance.
Michael Gardyne added the third just after the restart when he was on hand to fire home McMenamin's cross.
The Jags came close to a consolation goal five minutes from time but Sean Welsh's drive was tipped over by Michael Fraser.
Substitute Steven Craig almost added a fourth in closing stages but his effort came back off a post.
Victory moves Derek Adams' side nine points clear of second-placed Falkirk while Partick remain in fourth.
