History of the Partick Thistle v Kilmarnock fixture

Partick prepare to entertain Kilmarnock at Firhill Stadium on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Jags are clearly on top, having won 51 and lost only 19 of the 90 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Firhill Stadium was less than a year ago, in November 2002, with Partick running out comfortable 3-0 winners in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Partick Thistle's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. Jags have conceded a disappointing 11 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Kilmarnock's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. The Killie's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Partick find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 12 games have yielded only 2 points. Kilmarnock see themselves just below half way in the Bank of Scotland Scottish Premier, showing a record of 11 points from their 12 games played so far,
