Hamilton away 8/1/22

Recommended Posts

Thistle's first game of 2022 and our first in 3 weeks. Don't know who is available to play for Thistle due to injuries and covid issues. Hamilton seem to be hitting some good form and despite our 6-1 victory when we last visited them, this was never going to be an easy game but now we have the aforementioned injuries and covid issues to also deal with. Cmon Thistle. :fan:

Should I pay a (reasonable) tenner to watch or look for a free stream? Reality is I would be there if  I could be so I probably will.  It would be nice to get a win. It'll be interesting to see where (if) Mc Call plays Crawford

Tough one this. Hamilton on a wee run and we could be a tad bit rusty.  So as per Jags usual unpredictability 8-0  to Maryhill's famous. Crawford with all 8.

Will we be rusty or be refreshed? Any more missed games and I think it would be the former. Expecting only a slightly makeshift starting line up with perhaps not a full bench, or two or three youngsters making up the numbers. If they're fit and well, guys like McKenna, Gordon, Murray, McIver aren't exactly strangers to the first team, so the term "makeshift" may not be totally appropriate. 

Just hope that we've not reached the stage where we have to use this game to regain match fitness.

Stream bought. No idea whether the enforced break will help or hinder. I'm expecting a tight game. I'd take a 97th minute winner.

Yeah a tenner is a decent price for a stream. Much better than some of the thieving outfits out there trying to extort £19 from exasperated fans.

Hopefully the lack of Jags support at the game wont play a part and we come back with the three points.

I think given that Hamilton have found a bit confidence and form and will be mindful  of the hammering we gave them on our last visit I would be happy with a draw.

With all our recent troubles, covid etc I imagine Accies will start favourites however our strikers have been misfiring in recent games so perhaps this is the game where they come good again. I expect a tight game and if we can  dominate their big striker, the guy who scored their goal in the 6-1 game, then I think we can win.

I hope we have a strong referee as Tiffoney, going by comments from the Hamilton manager, will be given special attention!

C'mon the Jags

Striker David Moyo isn't playing today.  He was called up by Zimbabwe for the African Nations tournament.

As usual with Thistle, it’s very difficult to predict what kind of display we’ll see? However, I’ll stick my head on the chopping block and plump for a  Jags victory. Don’t know if that’s based on realism, optimism or faith. Probably the latter if I’m being honest.

Have got the picture up on screen and waiting for the commentary to begin. Is there any relevant difference between using Player 1, Player 2 or Player 3?

It feels like a 0-1 for us. But it’s a good starting XI with Turner on from the start.

Firhill only ground in Scotland to fail pitch inspection today.  

Our pitch will struggle from now on with QP using it alternate weeks.

Genuine question- does pitch overuse make a pitch more likely to be waterlogged? I understand that it makes the pitch more bobbly, barer and generally worse to play on, but does it affect drainage/saturation?
