Partick Thistle head into this game after a 0-0 League Cup drawn game vs Greenock Morton.
Partick Thistle have really been misfiring of late. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 4 vs opposing sides during their last six fixtures. In those games, The Jags have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them come to 5.
Their past results show that Partick Thistle:
- are winless against East Fife in their previous 3 matches in the league.
- are unbeaten in their last 5 league matches at home.
After suffering a loss in their previous game against Inverness C.T. in League Cup competition, East Fife will be hoping to turn things around here.
The stats tell the story, and East Fife have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 12 goals in all. At the back, The Fife have not been doing too well. That pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this match, however.
Their prior results show that East Fife:

- haven’t won away from home in the past 3 league matches.

Owing to a fully healthy group ready to go, East Fife boss Darren Young has zero fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Partick Thistle will, in all likelihood, stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
At the other end, East Fife will be up against it to score themselves but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be scoring here as well.
We’re therefore anticipating a pretty comfortable 3-1 margin for Partick Thistle at the end of this one.
