Team News: Partick Thistle
Partick Thistle boss Ian McCall doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this game thanks to a fully injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: Falkirk
In an otherwise full-strength group of players, there is just the sole fitness issue for the Falkirk boss Gary Holt to contend with. Paul Dixon (Knock) won’t be in action.
Our assessment here is that Falkirk may well find it hard to put one past this Partick Thistle team who we think will likely end up scoring and staying ahead.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a narrow 1-0 winning margin for Partick Thistle when all is said and done.
There should be little in it.
