Partick v Celtic preview

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has no fresh injury problems ahead of Wednesday's trip to struggling Partick Thistle.

Teenager Liam Henderson, who has been a revelation since replacing the injured Nir Biton in midfield, looks certain to carry on as the Israeli remains out with a groin problem.

The same injury is keeping Scotland winger James Forrest on the sidelines while Derk Boerrigter's miserable injury-hit season continues as he struggles to shake off the effects of an abdomen problem.

Thistle manager Alan Archibald will give a late fitness test to defender Lee Mair before finalising his line-up.

The former St Mirren star has been struggling with flu-like symptoms but will be given every chance to prove his fitness by Archibald, who is already without defender Conrad Balatoni who has a hand injury.

Thistle will be desperate to take something from the match as they sit just two points above second-bottom St Mirren in the battle to avoid the relegation play-off places.
