Partick Thistle vs Dundee FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Partick Thistle were knocked out of the FA Cup after a 3-2 loss against Celtic. Alan Archibald saw his team undone by a James Forrest hat-trick, while Kris Doolan and Conor Sammon tried to come to Partick Thistle’s rescue with goals in either half. Dundee fell to a third consecutive loss in all competitions, as they were beaten 3-2 by Kilmarnock at the Rugby Park. Eamonn Brophy’s early goal was negated by a penalty from Sofien Moussa and a second-half goal from Steven Caulker. However, Kilmarnock were able to stage an impressive comeback – even with 10 men after Gary Dicker’s red card – through Kris Boyd and Iain Wilson.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This fixture has been dominated by Partick Thistle, who have managed four wins in the last five meetings. Even though Dundee were able to get a victory in the reverse fixture back in December, Partick Thistle head into the game after having managed back-to-back wins at home against this opponent. The recent set of results for Partick Thistle has been poor due to the quality of the opposition. I would back a win for the home team in this game. Despite being down near the bottom of the table, Dundee have been able to score in five out of the last six away matches. Partick Thistle have not been the strongest team at the back after having conceded one more goal than Dundee (11) over the last six matches. I would back over 2.5 goals in the game.

Partick Thistle win – 27/20

Partick Thistle Preview

Partick Thistle have had a disappointing run of late, but the team has come up against the top two teams from the Scottish Premier League – Celtic and Rangers – in the last two games. Prior to meeting these two teams, the club went on a two game unbeaten run that also saw them claim a victory over St Johnstone on the road. Partick Thistle have been fairly good at home with five wins and two draws from 13 games. It is a completely different story when it comes to away matches, as the team has only managed a solitary away win in 13 attempts this season. Blair Spittal, Conor Sammon, Kris Doolan, and Chris Erskine have all scored four goals each to top the charts at the club.

Partick Thistle Team News

Alan Archibald will be without Gary Fraser (knee) and Christie Elliott (ankle) due to injury problems.

Dundee FC Preview

Dundee went through a strong surge of form at the start of the calendar year but their progress has been halted by three consecutive defeats. Those defeats have taken the wind out of the club, who could potentially fall to as low as 11th after the weekend. Dundee have conceded too many goals for their liking and the last six matches alone have seen the team concede a whopping 11 goals. Surprisingly, the team has fared well on the road with only seven goals conceded in the last six. AJ Leitch-Smith is the top scorer at the club with six goals in 19.

Dundee FC Team News

Dundee have Craig Wighton (cruciate ligament), Marcus Haber (knee), Kostadin Gadzhalov (calf), and Julen Etxabeguren (Achilles tendon) unavailable due to injuries.
