      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.
      HUGE MATCHES!
      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. 
      This time.
      Definitely.

      With just sixteen minutes left to play, the Dark Blues were ahead and looked good for the win with the man advantage but they surrendered the lead and eventually the points by allowing Killie to not only equalise by also grab the winner.

      "Only the players can explain why they're not doing their jobs properly," McCann said.
      "They've been told and they will be told repeatedly again that it's unacceptable.
      "We're 2-1 up and a man up, I've taken off a more attacking player for a defensive player, but for some unknown reason we can't manage that situation.

      "We've just got players running and I'm screaming at them from the touchline. We shouldn't lose that game."

      McCann was quick to point out that he felt Glen Kamara was fouled in the lead up to Kilmarnock’s winner but refused to blame the match official for Dundee throwing away the three points.

      "Glen Kamara is fouled right in front of us, Nick doesn't give it, and he waltzes through, the boy," McCann said.
      "I'm not happy with [the referee] not giving a free kick when Kamara was fouled. Other than that, both managers might have a few grumbles. [But] it wasn't the referee's faulty we lost the game."

      After seeing bottom of the table Ross County dismantle Dundee at Dens then gift wrapping the Scottish Cup tie to Motherwell last Saturday, the Dens men are looking to bounce back with a victory against in-form Kilmarnock to not only give themselves a major boost, but also the fans.
      Tonight’s opposition are going to prove a tough obstacle though. Since we last met Killie in the league nine games ago, they have won an impressive five, drawn two and only lost two. Something that Neil McCann is fulyl aware of.
      “They look as if they have a real understanding in how they play and a belief in what they are doing is right. The results certainly reflect that.
      “Steve has a way of playing and a structure and it has been really effective for them. Kilmarnock are a counter-attacking side who get really compact and then try to hit on the break.
      “So we have shaped up in a way that will allow us to play our own game but respect the opposition as we always do.”
      The Dark Blue fans could very well see the inclusion of surprise signing Steven Caulker in the defence for tonight.

      “Steven has a chance of playing but to what degree I’ll decide on that later,” said McCann
      “Josh Meekings is right on the edge as well. He was close on Saturday and he is even closer now.
      “However, Marcus Haber is out as he has hurt his back again.
      “Julen Etxabeguren and Matty Henvey are still out but the latter is making good progress and should return to training next Monday.”
