TABLE toppers Partick Thistle are looking for revenge on Saturday after Hamilton Accies dumped them out of the League Cup on Tuesday night.

Thistle face the Lanarkshire side at Firhill - this time in the league – and know they will be in for a tough encounter.

On Tuesday, Hamilton broke Partick’s unbeaten run of six straight competition wins when Accies Ali Crawford scored the only goal in extra time.

Thistle manager Jackie McNamara (pictured) was upbeat, saying: “It’s important to stay in a winning frame of mind. We know that Hamilton are a tough team, but will be ready for them on Saturday.”
