Motherwell V Partick Thistle - Firpark - Saturday 15 February - 3Pm K.o.

Recommended Posts

Does anybody actually think that we might win this one? Usually there are some optimists who have a good feeling about getting a victory, but they seem to be thin on the ground this week!

 

Reminiscent of Inverness away...

I think, and hope, we'll go with two up front. Now that we have Bauben in midfield we can have Bannigan, Bauben, and Fraser to cover midfield. Leaving Doolan and Taylor to play up front with Esrkine in behind. This should give more space to our full backs, but the three in midfield just need to be disciplined to support our full backs. Seems a good balance to me and we know we'll create with the understand Doolan and Erskine have. I don't think this is any less defensive than the formation we've been playing. McMillan stays because he's a better defender. Higgy dropped because he's not been producing an end product.

 

Gallacher

McMillan - Mair - Balatoni - Sinclair

Fraser - Bauben - Bannigan

Erskine

Doolan - Taylor

 

 

That is our best team we can play with the options we have...on it's day and barring individual errors in key places, we could beat most spfl teams.

Agreed but not most premiership teams.

Where did you see/ hear that? Can't find anything online.

 

Official Thistle tweet + the official site has been updated.

Assuming game goes ahead, and given that our front 1-2, ie Erskine, Doolan and Taylor, is top half Premiership material without a doubt, it's 3-1 Jags for me.

 

I'm just about to stick an impish wee fiver on that.

 

Monni Theesel!

Pitch inspection now at 1 according to motherwell twitter site as referee isn't arriving till then.

 

So they're confident the game's going ahead ... who's to say the referee will agree? FFS

 

... and one club says one thing, and then the other club says something different twenty minutes later? Roll a six to start ...
