Accies will want to get back to winning ways on Saturday when we play Partick Thistle at NDP, kick off 3.00pm. Our excellent unbeaten run came to an end at Dens Park last Saturday but the fact is that some decent chances were created and it was a game that we could have won. The midweek League Cup defeat at Aberdeen led some to suggest that we're now on a losing run but the fact that we're still at the top of the table with the second best goal difference in the league should be a reason to be very cheerful at this stage. Alex Neil's selection on Wednesday was driven by the suspension of Stephen Hendrie (left) and injury/illness for Danny Redmond and Jesus Garcia Tena, so it will be interesting to see if these players are restored to the team to face the Jags. Grant Gillespie has a one game suspension to serve but that will mean he misses the trip to Inverness next weekend.

Partick Thistle have had mixed fortunes recently, with a good win over Motherwell followed by a home goalless draw against St Johnstone and then a heavy defeat to Celtic in the League Cup. Although they had Stuart Bannigan red carded on Wednesday, they have appealled and he is eligible to play on Saturday.

Thistle fans will be in the Spice of Life (North) Stand as usual and standard league prices apply. Enter via turnstiles 7-12, coach and car parking at Caird Street / Beckford Street car parks, both 5 minutes from the ground. The match will be refereed by Brian Colvin.

Blameless, the children's charity based at New Douglas Park, is running a Fireworks Night at the stadium on Wednesday, 5th November from 7.00pm to 9.30pm. Admission is £3.00 for adults and £1.00 for children, with hotdogs and hot drinks available to help keep the cold out.
Come along and enjoy the show and help this worthwhile cause.
