JOHN LAMBIE guided Partick Thistle to many memorable wins – now it's the spirit of their former boss who could be inspiring them to a great escape.
The Jags beat Hamilton on the day a stand was named after their late gaffer and last weekend a last-gasp goal earned them a vital point at St Johnstone.
Now Alan Archibald's men are aiming to make it three unbeaten against Ross County tonight while victory would all but send the Highlanders down.
Thistle lead the basement boys by two and are four behind Dundee and Hamilton in the race to avoid the play-offs.
It won't be pretty at Firhill but I'm on the Jags to edge it and they are 5-4 at McBookie.
Thistle won 2-0 at home at New Year and have lost just one of the last six meetings when County visit.
Three of the last four have gone under 2.5 goals and that's likely to be the case again in a tense affair and pays 4-6 at Unibet.
Both managers have called for the ref to be calm in what could be a cauldron and there is every chance it could boil over with a red paying 13-5 at McBookie. After I posted the price bet365 put up 9-2 and I'm happy to risk 1pt on a Super Single.
In the Premiership play-offs Dundee United and Dunfermline are locked at 0-0 and the Pars could have missed their chance.
United won 2-1 and drew 1-1 in regular league meetings and I fancy them to edge it at 6-5 with William Hill while they are 4-7 at Sky Bet to reach the semis.
Dunfermline will harbour a grudge after believing they had Lee Ashcroft wrongly sent off Tuesday. They've appealed his red and he is free to play.
