The Dark Blues are at home for our next Ladbrokes Premiership game against 7th place Motherwell.
The Dee came back from 1 - 0 down to Partick Thistle in our last match to earn a valuable 3 points which pushed us up the table to 8th place and put us 5 points in front of that 11th place play off spot.
Our last game again Motherwell was in the Scottish cup earlier this month, in which we lost 2 - 0 at home in a very poor game. This was a game that we had edged in possession and shots on goal, but as the say, it's the goals which count.
Motherwell's tanner opened the score when his shot squirmed past Parish in the 30th minute. The second half saw the Dee go further behind and the chance of Scottish Cup glory fade once again after Holt was credited with giving away an own goal, Holt nodded the ball past Parish who was well off his line.
A win against Motherwell this week would go a long way to keeping us away from the bottom two spots. We have four tough games before the split, three of which are against Celtic, Rangers and Aberdeen and If I am being honest I fail to see where we will pick up points against them.
The ref against Partick Thistle was William Collum. How did you rate his performance in this game?
Alan Fraser from The Jagcast was ever so kind to talk to us at the last minute and answer some hastily put together questions!
This is the first of three very important matches for Partick Thistle. After us you square up away to both Hamilton and Ross County. Could these three games define your season?
It's squeaky bottom relegation dogfight time with the present bottom five clubs semi-detached from Motherwell and Kilmarnock at the moment. Of course these are three big games for Thistle and our respective opponents. Hard to not deal in cliches, six pointers etc.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think Thistle only brought in player in the January window (Defender Baily Cargill). Were you disappointed that Archibald wasn’t involved in more wheeling and dealing?
I really don't think we really needed to strengthen in any other area if the players coming back from injury are fit and ready. Losing Jordan Turnbull was a blow and with Milan Nitriansky being released and James Penrice being recalled from his loan spell at Livingston I think Archie did what was required. The squad now looks much stronger than earlier in the season.
Thistle have a habit of kicking on in the second half of the season. Are you confident that your club can do it again?
Confident? More hopeful than confident I suppose. We have been playing much better recently than earlier in the season. With Kris Doolan still scoring goals and the recent form of Conor Sammon we pose more of a goal threat at present. Time to push on, yes.
Our last match seen Dundee run out 3-0 winners with Danny Devine having a fairly forgettable match. Was this result and performance a bit of a shock to you?
I was a bit shocked at the scoreline that's for sure. I can't comment on the team performance as I didn't make that match. And if Danny Devine had a forgettable match then I'm prepared to forget about it too.
Both teams need a win here massively. I’d be happy with a point at Firhill if Hamilton and County failed to pick up any but how do you think Saturdays match will end?
Saturday's match will end with Thistle running out 4-1 winners.
Sofien Moussa scored two penalties as Dundee opened up a four point gap between themselves and bottom club Partick Thistle with a 3-0 win at Dens Park in the SPFL Ladbrokes Premiership. Mark O'Hara's fourth goal in five matches made the scoreline comfortable, as Thistle remain at the foot of the table.
