Thistle boss Stuart Davidson has praised his players for their hard work ethic and determined play which has seen them pick up four wins out of five to boost their Great Escape hopes.

Largs secured an important 2-0 win at Hurlford and need to keep winning with only three games to go in the PDM Buildbase West of Scotland Premier League.
With six teams going down, possibly seven, Largs have kept an impressive focus, and can only concentrate on themselves as other teams around them have been picking up results too.
Thistle had a blank Saturday to re-charge their batteries before facing two games in four days against Glenafton on May 11, and Clydebank on May 14, both at Barrfields, before the last game of the season at Roy Roy.
Looking back at the good run of results which have given Largs a fighting chance of staying up in this league, after many had written them off, Davidson said: "It is all down to hard work and defending well and being patient
"Saturday against Hurlford wasn't the best of games and there was not much football played
"I could see the boys getting frustrated a bit in the first half but we were defending well, and still in the game, and at this stage of the season we can't hit the panic button.
"We need to keep plodding away and wait for our moment which we did and we got the first goal at a good time before the interval and we backed that up with the second after the break.
"Will Sewell scored a superb opener - he showed patience as he has been working hard up front and some things weren't coming off but he kept working away. You know he will take one of those chances and he got the goal he deserved. Will then worked hard for the rest o the game and put in a good shift which is what it is all about at this stage of the season."
And twin brother George nearly scored with a spectacular 45 lob.
Davidson said: "I was telling him to drive with it but he went for the lob and it was a great effort and a super save."
"I was talking to Hurlford manager Darren Henderson and they were struggling to get a team in the first place but the boys they brought in made it a very tough game so it was all about trying to get the points."
The Largs boss has at last managed to secure a settled side which has played week in week out for the past five league games.
He said: "The team has been winning and everyone has been fit.
"I have told the players who weren't playing that they need to be on top of their fitness as we have three massive games coming up and who knows what is coming around the corner - everyone needs to be ready.
"We will have the boys in at training on Saturday - and aim to keep our sharpness up so we are prepared for Glenafton which is another massive game for us; it another cup final at our park against a side in the same situation as us.
"The boys have the confidence because of the good run we are on - we have secured another three points and that is a clean sheet for two weeks in a row - we need to keep it up."
If Largs win their remaining three games they will finish on 55 points. Each team plays 38 fixtures.
The league standings are as follows in the 20 team league - 8 Irvine Meadow 35 games played, 53 points, 9 Troon 37 games played, 53 points, 10 Benburb 38 games played 52 points, 11 Beith 36 games, 51 points, 12 Rob Roy 34 games played, 49 points, 13 Rutherglen 36 games played 49 points, 14 Largs Thistle 35 games played 46 points, 15 Glenafton 32 games played, 43 points, 16 Kilbirnie 38 games played, 40 points (relegated), 17 Rossvale 38 games played, 37 points (relegated), 18 Cumbernauld United 32 games played, 32 points.
