Partick Thistle vs Hearts Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Partick Thistle’s search for a first win of the 2017-18 SPL season continues after a 2-2 draw with Rangers. The away team took the lead through Alfredo Morelos in the 19th minute. However, Partick Thistle’s wait appeared to be on the verge of conclusion when Blair Spittal and Chris Erskine gave a 2-1 lead by the 50th minute. However, Rangers equalised in the 77th minute through Graham Dorrans as they took advantage of Erskine’s 67th minute red card. Hearts grabbed a 2-1 away win against Hamilton to end a three-game winless run. Goals from Ryan Callachan and Kyle Lafferty were enough for Hearts to render the Rakish Bingham goal as a consolation. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Partick Thistle have managed just a single win in the recent six matches against Hearts, who have three wins in this fixture but none in the last three. Hearts come into the game on the back of a confidence provided by the away win over Hamilton, but this fixture has recently been dominated by draws. There have been two draws in the last three meetings between these two clubs, and Partick Thistle have also been involved in back-to-back draws in the SPL. I would go with a draw in this game.

Partick Thistle have been poor defensively after conceding 11 goals in the league. As a result, two out of the recent three matches have been with more than 2.5 goals. It is a same case with Hearts, but their performances have improved since the appointment of Levein. Even then, I would go with this game producing more than 2.5 goals in total.

Partick Thistle Preview

Partick Thistle have been able to achieve two valuable draws in the last two matches, but the lack of wins is starting to hurt the club. The club are still awaiting the first victory of the season even though the campaign is now six games old. The defence has been a major issue for the club, as Partick Thistle have conceded 12 goals already. Only Ross County and Dundee have conceded more goals than Alan Archibald’s team. The lack of confidence within the club has been apparent at the start of the season, but there are signs of improvement in the last few games.

Partick Thistle Team News

Chris Erskine is suspended for the game, while Callum Booth (cruciate ligament) and Mustapha Dumbuya (knee) are unavailable due to injuries.

Hearts Preview

The appointment of Craig Levein has worked like a treat for Hearts, as the club have been able to pick up four points in the two games he has been in charge. The away victory over Hamilton will especially provide the club with plenty of confidence after they were involved in a goalless draw with Aberdeen in the previous game. There have already been several positives in the first two matches of Levein’s era, as Hearts have kept a clean sheet and have been able to get an away win. Esmael Goncalves and Kyle Lafferty are the top scorers at Hearts this season with two goals each.

Hearts Team News

Hearts are not suffering from injuries or suspensions coming into the game.
