Scottish Tour-Partick Thistle: 1-0 Clarets Win

Scottish Tour-Partick Thistle: 1-0 Clarets  Win

Burnley play against Partick Thistle tonight at the Firhill Stadium, in Glasgow(Kick-off 7;30 pm).

This will be the second game of the Clarets three match Scottish tour after their 1-1 draw against Queen of the South on Saturday.

The Clarets will complete their third game in five days on Wednesday night when they will play St. Johnstone, the club formerly managed by Owen Coyle before he joined Burnley FC.

So what do we know about Partick Thistle?

The club were formed in 1876 in the burgh of Partick which administratively was independent of Glasgow until 1912 when it was incorporated into the city.

Known as the The Jags but also The Harry Wraggs & The Maryhill Magyars, the club play at the Firhill Stadium in Glasgow.The current capacity of the ground is 10887 and is all seated.



Partick Thistle currently play in the Irn Bru Scottish First Division. They were promoted to the First Division via the play-offs at the end of the 2005-06 season.

Thistle appointed a new manager on May 25, 2007 with the announcement that ex Airdrie, Dundee United, and Queen of the South manager Ian McCall had been appointed to the post.Last season under Ian McCall they finished in 6th place.

Thistle have already played a number of friendlies in their pre-season build up.

Wins against Blyth Spartans and Ayr United were then coupled with defeats against Stranraer and Brechin City. Back to winning ways against Stirling Albion before their last match against Carlisle only two days ago which ended 0-0.

The season starts in earnest for Thistle this Saturday when then play Queen's Park in the Scottish Challenge Cup.

The Clarets are expected to have a complete squad to select from for tonight's match although there is some slight doubt that Remco van der Schaaf will be fully fit.

One player who could make his first appearance for the Clarets is likely to be Diego Penny, the Peruvian International goalkeeper who arrived in the UK from Lime,Peru last Friday and should now be fully recovered from jet-lag!

We are also likely to see our new trialist from Latvia, striker Gatis Kalninš. The 26-year old arrived at the Scottish camp yesterday with Owen Coyle declaring:

'Gatis joined up with the squad on Sunday night and we plan to have a look at him in Scotland.'

Coyle has also expressed the desire to 'shuffle the squad' so we may see a different starting line up tonight with no doubt numerous changes during the course of the game.

Vital Burnley will bring you news of the teams, lastest scores and substitutions as soon as we have the information and provide you with a half time and full time summary. Keep coming back to this article tonight to keep up with the match highlights

--------------------------------------------

The Teams:

Penny as expected makes his Clarets debut and Latvian striker Gatis Kalnins is also given a start as part of his trial. Van der Schaaf still looks to be injured and is not named in the 21!

Latest Score: 1-0 Clarets, Gudjonsson. New trailist Kalnins,instrumental in goal

Half Time: Clarets still leading 1-0, second half underway. Sounds like the new Latvian trialist is lively but could benefit by Elliott being on.

Full time: 1-0 Clarets, Gudjonsson goal enough. Kiraly, Berisha and Kay only subs not to feature. Penny makes some good stops and looks a solid keeper.Match report to follow.
