The Scottish Premiership play-offs kick off in Glasgow with both dreaming of a return to the top-flight.

Of the two, Inverness finished seven points higher in the Championship, ending up third with Patrick Thistle coming fourth.

On Friday night, Caley Thistle concluded their campaign by hammering Hamilton Accies 4-0 in the Highlands.

All four goals came inside the first half an hour, with Tom Walsh bagging a brace while Shane Sutherland and Joe Hardy also netted.

The Caley Jags are currently enduring a fifth successive season in the second-tier having dropped out of the Premiership in 2017.

Thus, Billy Dodds’ team are desperate to end this exile, looking first and foremost for a good result in this first leg.

Partick Thistle meanwhile are used to changing divisions in recent times.

They were relegated from the Premiership in 2018 and actually went down again in 2020, bouncing back by winning last year’s League One title.

So, Ian McCall’s side are aiming for back-to-back promotions, securing their play-off spot on the final day.

The Jags were beaten 3-1 at Ayr United on Friday, Alex Jakubiak with a late consolation, but ended up two points above Raith who drew simultaneously.

This is the first leg of the play-off quarter-finals, with the winners of this tie facing second-place finishers Arbroath in next week’s semis.

Partick and Inverness met four times during the regular league season; they both won a home game, while there were two draws in-between.

Will either claim a first leg advantage at Firhill Stadium?

Brian Graham scored 18 goals this season, including 13 in the Championship, with only two players netting more in the division.

He was actually left out the squad for Friday night’s defeat at Ayr, but should be back to lead the line for this one.

Winger Kyle McAllister was a key figure as St Mirren survived in the Premiership via these play-offs three years ago.

Shane Sutherland is Caley Thistle’s top scorer this season, taking his tally to 11 on Friday.

Inverness are without midfielder Scott Allardice who hasn’t played since 8 January due to a knee injury.

Billy McKay and Joe Hardy led the line against Hamilton but Logan Chalmers could displace either, more likely the latter.
