      Partick Thistle vs Aberdeen Predictions

      A host of postponements due to bad weather have left Partick Thistle in a bit of a sticky situation in the Scottish Premiership. They may have as many as three games in hand on the teams around them, but they still find themselves down in 10th position in the table only a point above the relegation playoff position.

      This puts them under pressure to gain points from their games in hand, and they have struggled with that a bit in recent weeks.

      Partick Thistle come into this match having won two of their last seven matches in all competitions, losing three times and drawing twice. Should they lose their three games in hand they could well find themselves in a battle against relegation.

      Aberdeen slipped up on Monday when they lost 3-1 away to Inverness CT, a result which allowed Celtic to regain a vital three point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership. The current champions still have a game in hand as well, so Aberdeen really need to get back to winning ways instantly if they are to maintain their impressive challenge for the title.

      This defeat ended Aberdeen’s four match winning streak in all competitions and also brought to a halt their 12 match unbeaten streak in the Scottish Premiership.

      Nine of these 12 matches ended in victory for the 2nd placed side, but the last two times Aberdeen have had an unbeaten streak ended they have gone on to lose again in the next match.

      But this is crunch time now. Aberdeen know that if they allow Celtic to build up a lead in the table now that it will be nigh on impossible to catch them, so I think they’ll be gunning for a victory on Friday.

      Add to this the fact that the visitors have beaten Partick Thistle in their last two visits there and I think the challengers can get a win. Odds of 10/11 for this outcome looks fair to me, and I’m also predicting an efficient 2-0 win for the visitors at 15/2.
