Partick Thistle vs Rangers Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Partick Thistle come into the game after having secured a point from the 1-1 draw with Motherwell. After a goalless first half, Partick Thistle took the decisive lead through Kris Doolan just after the break. However, they were unable to hold onto this lead as Nadir Ciftci came in with a 79th minute equaliser. Rangers fell to a first defeat of 2018 after the 2-1 loss against Hibernian. John McGinn stole the ball from Candeias and fired in a brilliant long-range effort in the 41st minute. Sean Goss, though, levelled the game with a stunning 73rd minute free kick. A Jamie MacLaren penalty just two minutes later led to the surprise defeat for the hosts.

Partick Thistle Preview

Partick Thistle continue to show good form that has seen them climb up to 10th in the table – beyond Hamilton. After having been one of the lowest scoring teams in the division, Partick Thistle are slowly making their way up in terms of the goals scored. The last four matches in all competitions have seen Partick Thistle manage a decent return of seven goals. So far this season, Partick Thistle have been let down by a poor away form, but there are signs of improvement on this front. Kris Doolan, Blair Spittal, Chris Erskine, and Conor Sammon are the top scorers with four goals each.

Rangers Preview

The setback against Hibernian is a major blow for Rangers in the hopes of finishing second in the Scottish Premier League 2017-18 table. Rangers have been criticised for their inconsistencies this season, but the defeat against Hibernian came after a string of victories for the team in all competitions. Yet, it gives Aberdeen with a significant advantage in the second spot. Derek McInnes and his team have been able to open up a six-point advantage in the last two matchdays. Interim manager Graeme Murty will not be too disappointed with the loss against Hibernian, as his team played relatively well in the game. Alfredo Morelos leads the scoring charts at Rangers with 11 league goals.
