Partick Thistle v Dundee Betting Tips And Predictions
Date: 28th December 2016
Partick Thistle emerged from their storm strewn trip to the Highlands with three well earned points.
There weren’t many predicting an away win but anyone who was watching closely will have known The Jags had a good win coming. Such is the nature of the Scottish Premiership this season a strong Thistle side had gone seven games without a win.
But this is a strong side. Perhaps as good a side as has come out of Firhill for some time. Hence why I tipped them to finish in the top six at the start of the season. It was a bold prediction so it is good to see them putting up a good show.
Although I always had faith. I rate a number of this Thistle side from Cerny in the goals who has come back into form after a spell injured. Young Liam Lindsay is making a name for himself at centre-half with the invaluable attribute of scoring a chunk of goals from set pieces. He’s got a cracking header on him.
Up front Kris Doolan will always score goals given half a chance. And in Erskine, Amoo, Lawless, Welsh and Edwards they have the players to supply the ammunition. They put in a good show at Celtic Park, destroyed Hearts at Tynie and almost halted Rangers’ recent run before it even started.
Despite Dundee picking up a good result against Hearts they may struggle here. Even The Dee fans accepted a dollop of fortune surrounded that win. They may need that fortune again to prevent The Jags overtaking them.
There is also a big carrot there for Alan Archibald’s side to grasp at. With Ross County playing at Celtic and Killie away to Aberdeen a win will almost certainly lift them into the top six. They deserve it as much as anyone.
