Inverness CT vs Partick Thistle Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Inverness are keen to get off the bottom of the Scottish Premier League table and they began 2017 in positive fashion with a 2-1 win over Elgin City in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup. Losana Doumbouya is the club’s top scorer in the league and he scored the second goal in the 66th minute. Larnell Cole had earlier given the team an equaliser to Mark Nicolson’s 25th minute goal. Partick Thistle had a comfortable outing with a 4-0 win against Formartine United in the Scottish Cup fourth-round. A brace from Chris Erskine and goals from Steven Lawless and Abdul Osman secured a place in the fifth round of the competition.

Inverness Preview

Inverness have failed to win in the last 10 league matches while suffering seven defeats along the way. This abysmal form has seen them drop to the bottom of the table. The form has been so bad that the club are already four points adrift of 10th placed Kilmarnock. While manager Richie Foran would be reasonably happy with his attack – a return of 26 goals in 21 league matches, Inverness have been leaking quite badly at the back with 40 goals conceded. In recent games, though, there have been signs of improvement at the back.

Partick Preview

A few weeks ago, Partick Thistle were at the bottom of the division, but they are now just one point behind the top six places. The team has lost only one game – a narrow 1-0 defeat against Celtic – in the last five league matches. In the last five matches, Partick Thistle have taken more points than any other team outside the top three. The club has conceded only three goals in the last five matches as opposed to 11 in the previous five. Kris Doolan has scored two goals in his last three league matches to take his league tally to five goals.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Inverness have only lost by a single goal margin in the last three defeats, while they also have conceded more than two goals only once in the last five games. The defence is certainly improving, but perhaps not enough to keep out a Partick Thistle team high on confidence. The last two meetings between Inverness and Partick Thistle at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium have ended as goalless draws. I see value in backing a draw or a Partick Thistle win.

Inverness have failed to score only once at home this season, and Partick Thistle have scored five goals in their last three league matches. I would expect this trend to continue and the game to witness over 2.5 goals.

Draw or Partick Thistle win – 4/7
