PARTICK THISTLE put their Premiership future on the line tonight and I'm backing them to emerge unscathed.
In the play-off final they face a Livingston side who came through strongly against Dundee United and who will fight for everything.
Those odds don't reflect how close it could be and the first leg at the Tony Macaroni looks like a draw at 12-5 with Marathonbet.
Thistle's problem all season has been goals and they've netted just 11 away from home but Livi conceded in both legs of the semi-final and at times their defence look exposed against the Tangerines.
The Jags have more experience and of course have been playing at a high level and the absence of on-loan Rangers striker Ryan Hardie could be a fatal blow for Livi.
And if Rafa de Vita, injured in the first leg against United, is a doubt and is he missed out that's a loss of goals and creativity.
David Hopkin's side are 2-1 underdogs at William Hill tonight while Thistle look a little short at 6-4 at McBookie Park – I'm sure they'd be happy to take a draw back to Firhill.
A half-time draw also has a chance at 20-21 with McBookie and under 2.5 goals is likely at 4-6 with McBookie.
In Hardie's absence they'll look to Lee Miller who is 13-2 with McBookie to score first and 11-5 at any time.
Jags talismanic Doolan is 5-1 for the opener and 9-5 to score but may not start even if fans are clamouring for him to do so. Conor Sammon is 19-4 at 17-10 respectively and will start.
