PREVIEW: Partick Thistle v Aberdeen


The last time that Aberdeen won five league games in a row was in the reign of Sir Alex Ferguson in 1984 and they would go on to win the title.

And with Partick Thistle playing host to a resurgent Aberdeen side under the tutelage of Derek McInnes, I can only see one outcome – Aberdeen matching that stat – with Celtic to face next weekend.

Thistle have yet to pick up a win this season and with their midweek defeat to Falkirk in the League Cup, I cannot see the Jags pulling off a shock win.

It is somewhat harsh on Archibald and Thistle as a whole, but they have been hit hard with injuries and departures in the summer and I cannot see them being shown any mercy today.


Team News

Christie Elliot is still out for Thistle with a stress fracture in the pelvis, while Stuart Bannigan and Sean Welsh return to the fold after serving a suspension and recovering from injury respectively.

Mark Reynolds is still out with a shoulder injury, while Willo Flood and Peter Pawlett will return to the squad following injuries.

Partick Thistle XI: Cerny, Miller, Welsh, Booth, Osman, Bannigan, Lawless, Frans, Lindsay, McDaid, Pogba.

Subs: Scully, Seaborne, Amoo, Doolan, Stevenson, Wilson, Hendry.

Aberdeen XI: Ward, Logan, Shinnie, Considine, Taylor, McLean, Rooney, McGinn, Hayes, Goodwillie, Jack.

Partick Thistle can’t seem to be a win this season with Aberdeen visiting it will be another three points they will be waving away too as the opposition return home with all three points nicely tucked up on the full time whistle.

Aberdeen to secure a comfortable win 3-0.
