Rovers travel back to Glasgow for what could be the final time this season as they prepare to face off against Play-Off Rivals, Partick Thistle tomorrow. 

John McGlynn’s side head to Firhill looking for their second win of the campaign over Ian McCall’s side and will hope to be able to see from one side of the pitch to the other when they arrive in Maryhill this weekend after the fog descended on the last encounter between the two. 

Rovers go into the game looking for their first league victory in over a month as they look to keep their slim Play-Off chances alive and they know that by taking three points off of their Firhill counterparts, they can force the play to go right down to the wire. 

Rovers will feel hard done by after last time out against Morton, having had the better of the chances, but ultimately not the deciding touch in the 1-0 defeat to Dougie Imrie’s side. 

Robbie Muirhead’s solitary second half strike was all that separated the side’s in that one. 

Thistle on the other hand are looking to turn a corner after recording their first win in five games last time out as Scott Tiffoney’s strike was all that separated his side and Wullie Gibson’s Queen of the South. 

Ian McCall’s side hold onto the last Play-Off spot and will be doing all that they can to keep a six point gap between the two sides. 

Rovers haven’t had much luck in the fixture in recent times, having only won once at Firhill in their last five visits.
