Ian McCall has been left delighted with his Partick Thistle side as they defeated Inverness 3-1 at Firhill. Alex Jones also impressed as he partnered Kenny Miller up front in what was one of the Jags’ most impressive wins of the season.

With Jones running Inverness ragged with his runs in behind constantly, he remained a threat to the Highland outfit all game as they couldn’t match him for pace.

Thistle are now up to eight in the table and have the play offs in sight following a decent run of form. Minus a 5-1 blip away to Dunfermline, they are undefeated in six, which McCall’s very happy with.

“We’ve had five wins a draw and a defeat in our seven games and it’s a substantial run now for us,” he said. “The window opens in January and we’ll be looking to strengthen. If we can keep it going, we can start looking up the table.

“Inverness have the best manager in the division, so it was nice to get the win. It was a terrific game on a horrible day and it could have finished 5-3.

“You have to fight for everything in this league as all the teams are evenly matched apart from Dundee United who have a striker who can play anywhere in Scotland.

“We had a lot of good performances and it was a great day for us. The fans in red and yellow can head home happy. Alex worked his socks off. He hasn’t had many games.”
