Partick v Hamilton preview

Partick Thistle will again have Paul Gallacher in the goalkeeper's jersey as they prepare to entertain Hamilton Academical in the Premiership on Saturday.

Gallacher replaced Scott Fox in goal when he was dismissed in the 1-1 draw with Dundee and the latter is now suspended for two games.

Centre-back Ben Richards-Everton, who was previously with Tamworth, joined on a one-year deal this week and could be involved in Alan Archibald's line-up while fellow defender Gabriel Piccolo has left the club.

Jon Routledge is the only absentee from the Hamilton squad for their trip to Firhill.

The midfielder has recovered from his knee injury but is still building up fitness.

Forward Louis Longridge has trained this week after recovering from a dislocated toe while player/manager Alex Neil has recovered from a knock and could be involved.
