Partick Thistle vs Ross County
Date: Saturday, 30 December 2017
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: The Energy Check Stadium (Glasgow).
The tension will be high on Saturday afternoon when bottom two likes take on each other in a relegation six-pointer at The Energy Check Stadium in Glasgow. Both teams have been struggling badly in the Premiership ever since the season started, but we can say the hosts will enter the match in higher spirits after showing signs of improvements in the last couple of weeks.
The Jags seem to have repaired the holes in the defensive line as they have only conceded a single goal in last two league ties. Also, they’ve earlier conceded no more than two goals away at the defending champions Celtic, and they’ve put up a really strong resistance to Aberdeen in mid-week’s clash at Pittodrie (a narrow 1-0 defeat).
Problems pop up at the other end of the pitch since Partick own the weakest attacking record in the league at the moment. Goals mainly come from the center of the park as midfielders Chris Erskine and Brian Spittal currently top the team’s goalscorers list with four goals apiece. Nonetheless, striker Kris Doolan should really get chances to boost up his confidence and find the back of the net this Saturday when the jags are about to take on one of the weakest defensive lines in the league.
Ross County have been disastrous at the back lately and they’ll enter this match after being winless in eight consecutive league ties conceding at least a goal in all but one of outings during the process.
Partick Thistle vs Ross County: Predictions
Partick have clinched an important 1-0 win in their previous home encounter with Hamilton Academical last weekend.
Since they have really improved their defensive displays as of late, and since Ross County don’t represent a threat when they play a2way from home (four losses and a draw in last five matches), we have to try with the home win at the 2.15 odds.
