Airdrieonians v Partick Thistle Betting Preview
Betfred Scottish League Cup
Location: New Broomfield
Date: 15th July 2016
Partick Thistle are short most of their defence heading into this game.
That crisis includes goalkeepers with little more than new signings Ziggy Gordon, Danny Devine and a number of youngsters to choose from. But they do have the guts of what is looking like an exciting forward line.
Therefore I would certainly expect The Jags to score. Kris Doolan remains a goalscoring sensation at Firhill and he has been joined by new signing Ade Azeez. David Amoo, Abdul Osman and Chris Erskine should supply plenty of ammunition to whomever gets the strikers berth.
But they will be concerned about their momentary injury crisis. Tomas Cerny is, for my money, one of the best keepers in the SPFL Premiership. His absence will be a big loss. Their weak defence might have a few issues against an Airdrieonians side with big plans.
The Airdrie side have gone full time in an attempt to make their way up the SPFL divisions. They have been busy with new signings including Iain Russell and Ryan Conroy from Queen Of The South. Furthermore they have held on to the much sought after young Goalkeeper, Rohan Ferguson.
The Diamond’s preseason gives plenty of reason for optimism with three wins and a draw. As a result the mostly young squad should be eager to keep their form going with a chance to test themselves against a side from the top league in the country.
With plenty of endeavour and no shortage of craft they may also be very capable of getting on the scoresheet.
