Grehan: We want to finish on a high - and get revenge for mauling

PARTICK Thistle are looking to finish the season on a high but also exact some revenge when they play their last game of the league campaign tomorrow against Division One runners-up Raith Rovers.

The Jags welcome the Fife team to Firhill in a game they are keen to win says Martin Grehan.

He stressed that the whole squad are keen to finish the season on a high note.

However according to the 26-year-old striker a win at Firhill would also be just revenge for the very first encounter at the beginning of the season when Rovers trounced Thistle 4-0 at Stark’s Park.

Grehan is not sure if he will be fit enough for tomorrow’s game after suffering concussion following an awkward clash with Dundee’s Stephen O’Donnell.

He said: “The top spot in the league has already been decided, but that won’t stop Rovers giving it their best shot.

“We are equally keen to finish in fourth place not fifth and will not take anything for granted.”

Grehan said he really wanted to be part of the team on Saturday, but would, “just have to wait and see if I’m fit enough.”

Commenting on the incident that got him stretchered off during Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Dundee, he said: “I feel better now but felt very groggy at the time. I don’t really know what happened, but have been told I had concussion.

“The gaffer will make a decision before the match if I’m fit enough.”

The last time the two teams met in March, Thistle beat them 2-0 away and on Boxing Day they drew 0-0.

Grehan was reticent about predicting the score tomorrow but did say: “I don’t think it’s going to be a high scoring game. It’ll be very tight.”

Meanwhile, Partick Thistle’s reserves went down to a 4-0 thumping from Dumbarton’s second string on Monday evening.

Despite Simon Donnelly’s presence, this was a largely inexperienced side, which contained a number of trialists and they were well beaten on the night.
