Recent respective form guides

Partick Thistle's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Jags have scored 8, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Rangers's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 leaked at the wrong end.

Partick Th. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 21 games have yielded only 9 points. Rangers are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 50 points from 21 games.
