Ross County v Partick Thistle Betting Tips And Predictions
Location: Global Energy Stadium
Date: 23rd April 2016
Thistle are winless in six, a run that sends them to the bottom of the league. County are unbeaten in six and find themselves in the top six. Will this go to form?
When Thistle last won a match, Christmas decorations were the last thing on anyone’s mind. It wasn’t even Halloween yet when St. Johnstone lost to the Jags. To be fair to Alan Archibald’s men, since then, they have faced all of the top four sides, and have run them all close.
If they continue to show the same form they should haul themselves off the bottom. They won’t face a more difficult run of fixtures again this season. However, they will need a positive result sooner rather than later. Three wins all season can hardly be good for confidence.
In six matches unbeaten, Ross County have also faced three of the top four. The difference is Celtic. While the Jags faced the Champions twice, Jim McIntyre’s side only had to contend with Rangers, Hearts and Aberdeen. Still, to emerge with five points from those three matches was no mean feat.
A bit of luck can go a long way in this league though. These two sides have almost identical goal differences. Both have scored 19, and Thistle have conceded one fewer than County’s 29. Despite this better goal difference, the Jags are five points behind the Dingwall side. County are in the top six, Thistle are bottom. That just makes no sense, but then this is a league that often doesn’t.
Thistle could move as high as eighth with a win, depending on results elsewhere. Their closest rivals, Inverness Caley Thistle and Dundee face Rangers and Hearts respectively. Both sides are one point clear of the Jags and can be overhauled.
However, Thistle will not relish a long trip to Dingwall so close to Christmas. County will be full of confidence after beating Aberdeen 2-1 last week.
Can the Jags avoid spending Christmas at the bottom of the league?
