Hearts vs Partick Thistle Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Hearts come into this game after having suffered a 2-1 loss against Kilmarnock. Kris Boyd provided Steve Clarke’s men with a decisive first-half lead, but Hearts continued to threaten with Esmael Goncalves. Unsurprisingly, it was the forward who came up with the equaliser in the 72nd minute. Yet, Hearts were unable to hold on to this lead for much longer as Adam Frizzell equalised with four minutes left of normal time. Partick Thistle’s three-game unbeaten run ended with a heavy 3-0 loss against Rangers. Ross McCrorie opened the scoring in the 30th minute before Candeias doubled the lead in the 39th minute. A second-half goal from Josh Windass led to a comprehensive victory for the hosts.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Even though Hearts suffered a loss against Kilmarnock in the previous game, the team could have easily won the game had it not been for Esmael Goncalves striking the post twice and missing some clear opportunities. Kilmarnock were also able to get victory only courtesy of a late goal. Partick Thistle have been poor in terms of scoring with only 11 goals, while they have picked up only two points on the road. I would back a victory for Hearts. Both teams come into the game with the very poor scoring record, with the hosts managing 12 goals and the away team securing one fewer in the first 13 matches of the season. This is expected to be a low scoring game.

Hearts Preview

Hearts are looking to snap out of a three-game losing streak, which is threatening to eliminate hopes about a top six finish – even if it is still early days in the season. Hearts are on the verge of dropping out of the top six and they have been able to preserve this position only by virtue of teams below them not being in a position of great strength. The club has scored only 12 goals – the second lowest in the table and only behind Kilmarnock and Partick Thistle. Kyle Lafferty is the leading scorer with five goals in 12.

Hearts Team News

Jamie Walker (hamstring), Ashley Smith Brown (groin), Prince Buaben (knee), John Souttar (concussion), and Arnaud Djoum (ligament) are the players unavailable for Hearts.

Partick Thistle Preview

Partick Thistle may not read too much into the loss against Rangers, as the club has been putting more concentration into home form rather than results on the road. Both victories for the club this season have been at their home, while Partick Thistle have picked up only two points from a potential 18 on the road. As expected, the club have one of the poor defensive records with 22 goals shipped in the 13 league matches so far. At the other end, the club has managed less than a goal per game. Blair Spittal and Chris Erskine have been able to take position as the top scorers at Partick Thistle so far. Both have scored three goals each.

Partick Thistle Team News

Chris Erskine (calf), Stuart Bannigan (knee), Christie Elliott (ankle), Abdul Osman (knee), and Mustapha Dumbuya (knee) are the players unavailable for Partick Thistle.
