Partick Thistle vs Ross County
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Friday, 4 May 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: The Energy Check Stadium (Glasgow).
Both Partick Thistle and Ross County have been struggling badly for consistency throughout the entire season in this term of the Premiership. They hold bottom two spots of the league standings at the moment, coming into Friday’s head to head clash at The Energy Check Stadium. It is a match which has all the ingredients of a relegation six-pointer with just two points separating them down at the foot of the league ladder and with only three games left to play.
The hosts are in a better position having clinched four points in two previous games in the Relegation Round. They are now two points off the Staggies and a draw would likely work out well for them here. A win would open up the way towards the safe zone which is currently four points away for the Jags who hold the place leading to the relegation playoffs at the moment.
Partick Thistle vs Ross County: Head-to-head
The Jags lead the head to head tie by a single win ahead of 52nd meeting with Ross County.
They won three and drew one of four matches before falling 4-0 at Global Energy Stadium in Dingwall just a month ago.
Three or more goals were seen in three of last five head to head games between these rivals.
Partick Thistle vs Ross County: Prediction
We definitely don’t expect a high-scoring scenario here given that the match has a massive importance for both teams. Moving forward, Ross County failed to find the back of the net in last two games in the Relegation Round. You can back Partick Thistle to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.75.
Additionally, Alan Archibald’s men will head into the match in much higher spirits having defeated Hamilton Academical 2-1 at home before holding St. Johnstone to a 1-1 draw last weekend on the road. The home win is paid at 2.25 and we can see the value there.
