Partick Thistle | Match Preview

On Saturday, Ayr United travel to Glasgow to take on Partick Thistle in the cinch Championship. It is fifth versus sixth in the league table, with Thistle one point above the Honest Men after seven games.

After steering United to seven points from nine and away from the bottom of the table, Jim Duffy was appointed manager on a permanent basis on Friday and heads to one of his former clubs looking to extend Ayr’s beaten run to five games in all competitions.

Opposition

Thistle head into the game on the back of three straight league defeats. Late strikes from Brian Graham and Zak Rudden were not enough to take anything away from Starks Park last weekend after Rovers raced into a three goal lead.

Ian McCall’s squad includes five former Ayr players, Steven Bell, Scott Tiffoney, Cammy Smith, Stuart Bannigan and captain Ross Docherty while striker Brian Graham - a regular thorn in United’s side - will be looking to add to his tally of 8 goals in 12 games this season.

Team News

Jordan Houston, Daire O'Connor and Michael Hewitt miss out through injury.

The Manager Says:

“We know how competitive the Championship is and Thistle are a team who will be expecting to challenge at the top end under Ian, so it will be a tough game but one that we are looking forward to.”

“We are on a good run of form, confidence is high and hopefully there will be a big and noisy travelling support behind us at Firhill”.

Head to Head

Ayr United wins - 44

Draws - 29

Partick Thistle wins - 49

Partick Thistle have won just one of the last eight meetings between the sides and United are unbeaten on their last five visits to Firhill.

Last Meeting:

The last meeting between the sides was in January 2020 at Firhill. The Friday night fixture saw Brian Graham put Thistle ahead in the 33rd minute, steering home Joe Cardle’s cross from close range but Alan Forrest netted an equaliser for the Honest Men from the penalty spot in the second-half and the game ended 1-1

Team: Doohan, Houston, Harvie, Bell, Muirhead; Kerr (McCowan), Docherty (Gillespie), Kelly, Forrest; Moffat (Tiffoney), Drinan
