Partick Thistle are headed towards relegation as they prepare to host Hamilton Academical at Firhill Stadium on Saturday.
Thistle have picked up only one point from their last eight games, and they have failed to find the net in their last five games. In their last game, a couple of weeks ago, Thistle lost 1-0 to Kilmarnock at home.
On the back of such terrible form, the Jags find themselves rock-bottom of the league table. They are five points adrift of the safety, and time is running out for them.
Partick have been decent against bottom-half sides at home, so they would fancy their chances against Hamilton, who have been equally terrible in the recent weeks. The hosts also enjoy an excellent home record against their opponents, so this game presents a perfect opportunity to Partick to turn around their form.
The Accies come into this game on the back of five straight defeats. Coincidentally, their last game was also against Killie, and they lost 2-0 at home.
The visitors are placed ninth in the league table with 30 points. Only four points sperate them from the bottom two and the threat of relegation is very much alive. Especially, they can’t afford to lose against a direct opponent at this stage of the season. Hence, we suspect that the visitors will be satisfied with a draw in this game.
