Partick Thistle

Thistle’s final match of the season against Motherwell was a bit of a non-event which finished 0-0 with only a few moments of drama.

Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald said: “The game certainly had an end of season feel to it but there were definitely some positives to take.

“I thought we played well at times and it was good to get a couple of the younger guys a taste of first team football. We had a couple of late call-offs but the boys that came in I thought handled it well.”

The manager was forced into a change of formation and went with three at the back.

Archie added: “It’s something we have tried before in training and potentially gives us an extra option for next season. Ideally you would want to get to the point where we can change it in the middle of a game to help break down teams and it was good to see how the lads handled it.”

Giving some of the younger players a try out has shown the quality that is coming through. Among these are David Wilson and Jack Hendry who were in the starting eleven on Saturday.

Archie said: “David and Jack both started their first games and both did very well. Hopefully they’ll continue to develop and stay in and about the first team set up.

“We can now go and enjoy the summer and start looking to build the team for the next season.”
