At half-time of Partick’s recent match against Ross County, it looked like Gary Caldwell’s team were going to continue their recent run of good form.
It was just the result Caldwell didn’t need ahead of a pivotal week for the Firhill club.
They face Dunfermline in a vital league match on Tuesday night. Before taking on Hearts in the Scottish Cup next Monday. Caldwell will have to hope his team’s heads haven’t gone to pieces following the loss to County.
There’s no shame in losing to Inverness, they are the league leaders after all. But the manner of it will be the most worrying aspect for Caldwell.
From being so dominant in the first-half to being ripped apart in the second-half, shows that the mentality still isn’t right at Firhill. Which probably explains why Thistle are once more bottom of the league.
It will be intriguing to see which game Caldwell prioritises this week. To the club’s supporters, the cup tie will be the more glamorous game, but the bottom line is that the league is more important. It is bound to be another interesting week in the West End of Glasgow.
