Accies make the short trip to Maryhill on Saturday to face Partick Thistle, kick off 3pm. We’re in a good position at the moment, with six points from the opening three matches, but face up to a Jags team that defeated Ross County 4-0 in their previous home game and then earned a good draw up at Dens Park last time out. The fact that popular midfielder Tony Andreu was able to make his first appearance of the season as a substitute last weekend was a great boost and he must be a strong contender for a starting spot this week, having come through 90 minutes at Inverness on Tuesday. Player/manager Alex Neil is also likely to come back into the squad after missing out last week through injury.
Eamonn Brophy was another who caught the eye in midweek with a hat-trick for the Development team and he’ll be keen to get involved too.
Louis Longridge (left) has also trained this week after dislocating a toe a fortnight ago. Louis and Alex are added to last week's 18.
Partick will miss goalkeeper Scott Fox (who was a youth player at Accies 13 years ago!) after his red card last weekend, but have the experienced Paul Gallagher as deputy. They signed former Tamworth defender Ben Richards-Everton during the week after he had impressed on trial. They also feature former Accies player Gary Fraser and he’s been in cracking form this season with a couple of good goals to his name already.
Accies fans will be housed in the main stand (as opposed to the more familiar Jackie Husband Stand), with admission set at £22 for adults and £15 for concessions (over 65s, students and disabled fans). Children under 16 can get in for £5.
