I'm about a mile from the ground and it's been dry all day and not too bad - all depends how goosed their pitch is but it really shouldn't be off in this weather.

Absolutely have to take something from this tonight.

 

I'd settle for a point (provided we're not denied the win by another highly dubious late penalty!)

 

Like always, I have a bad feeling however.....

Well it certainly won't be a surface for playing good football. It'll be all about determination, hard work, organisation and yes, good luck.

Our recent history at Firhill is pretty awful, not an away ground we get much joy at.

 

We are surely due a lucky break though after a month of hard luck stories.

 

Thistle after a good run have hit a little sticky patch, so lets hope we can take advantage of that.

Just drove by the ground on my way home. There's something about the floodlights gets me excited.

To be fair, the 6-6 Hibs game and Jutkiewicz's volley were on a horrific pitch, so you never know.

Continuity is no bad thing. Even if Gomis gets the last half hour, that'll help for Saturday. Hopefully we won't need to bring him on. Another couple of days training with the team before the cup game won't do any harm...

Just saw photos of the nick of the pitch.

Ooft.

We, quite rightly, got slated for it. Theirs looks equally as bad.

No clamour for points deductions etc though.

Anyway... Quite looking forward to it. Will be cutting it fine, so will need to be a Brisk walk (or taxi) up Maryhill Rd

wouldve preferred Gomis in for a start with a view to the cup game

I too would have preferred Gomis to start if only because it would give our midfield more bite and afford more protection to the centre backs and Ripley. Still MMcG knows best and he may have thought Gomis not to be fully match fit. We certainly cannot afford to sit back like we did last Saturday.

Surprised we've went with same lineup as Saturday, the likes of Ainsworth and Kennedy could have came in without weakening us too much. Hopefully tonight on a heavy pitch doesn't hamper out hopes in the cup.

 

What's the script with Laing? Missed the bench again and wasn't in U20s team today.
