Partick Thistle vs Rangers
Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 26h November 2016
Kick off at 12:15 UK Time
Venue: Firhill Stadium, Maryhill, Glasgow.

A local derby here will see Partick take on Rangers which is usually a fixture good enough to sell out the 10,000 capacity stadium. Partick are 11th from 12 positions but the good news is that just one win could propel them into a safety place.

However their form lately has not been good where they have lost their last two games. These losses came against teams higher than them and boasting quality in Aberdeen and Motherwell. So facing Rangers does not bode well for the club.

At home Partick have not won a game in their last five matches and have won just 1 home game all season. They have drawn almost half of their games in front of their home fans.
Rangers come into this match after a very underwhelming performance against Dundee where it took a last minute goal to win the game by 1-0. Rangers have the 2nd best form in the league and whilst they have gone on a good month unbeaten run the odd draw has surfaced.

Away from home Rangers form has been very patchy. From a possible 18 points they have 8 and from 6 games they have won two. In the last few weeks they have failed to beat Kilmarnock and Ross County and only beat Inverness 1-0.
