He said: “I left him out about a week and a half ago because of his thigh, then we played him at Dundee United and it’s strained. I have spoken to him there and he thinks he might just be another week to 10 days, which is great news.”

Partick Thistle return to League One action against Montrose tonight just 48 hours after beating Clyde 2-0. Looking to go second in the league, McCall knows its importance: “It was difficult as Clyde put a lot of men behind the ball. The second half, Clyde have had a heavy schedule, and if we continued to move the ball about we would get some joy.

“I have every faith in Zak Rudden and he scored two good goals. We felt against Clyde we could go with the same XI as the previous weekend due to their heavy schedule. I think Clyde had played five games in 10 days when they beat Ayr United at Somerset Park so you aren’t guaranteed to win. But every game now we have to try and win and and it would be nice to do that before a free weekend.”
