A Real Scrap

Partick Thistle, need a win to go seven points in front of today’s opponents. Meanwhile, a Motherwell win would see them climb to just a point behind Thistle. That would result in a real scrap to get away from the second bottom spot and a play-off to determine their top flight status.

Never has a game for second bottom place drawn so much interest in the Scottish Premier League’s history, and especially amongst Scottish football supporters across the board. With a resurgent Motherwell team starting to claw its way out of the danger-positions, the battle is now on for Motherwell, Partick Thistle, Ross County and Kilmarnock to stay away from the dreaded second bottom spot.

The team that finishes there will face a play-off against the winner of the play-offs in the Championship. It is this possibility that has captured out attention, as  one of the teams in the Championship race is the once famous and successful Glasgow Rangers.
