ABERDEEN skipper Graeme Shinnie has targeted Partick Thistle to hand his side their first win in four.

The versatile defender/midfielder was suspended for the recent defeats from Hibs and Celtic and returned to score the Dons’ goal in their 1-1 Scottish Cup draw with Kilmarnock.

As Derek McInnes prepares his team for Tuesday’s replay at Rugby Park, Shinnie is focusing on Firhill on Saturday.

He said: “Partick is a game where we need to get three points to gain a bit of momentum again.

“We just want to win every game that comes round and the biggest game is the next one coming.

“We have had a couple of frustrating defeats in the league and want to get points back on the board again.

“It is important to get back to winning ways in the league.

“The Motherwell game being off last Wednesday was disappointing as we wanted to bounce back as quickly as possible.

“We have had a week to prepare for Partick Thistle and are looking forward to it.”
