Thistle boss Stuart Davidson said it is time for his squad to show some character and bounce back against Cambuslang in another big Premier clash.
It is a 2pm kick-off at Barrfields Park as Largs who had been in great goalscoring form in recent weeks suffered a surprise solitary goal defeat against Troon on Saturday.
Largs had some ding-dong affairs with Cambuslang last season including an abandoned game, two wins, and a defeat on penalties in the West of Scotland Cup, and this weekend promises to be a potential cracker.
Like Largs, the Lang have achieved some good results since being promoted in the Premier, with both sides occupying seventh and eighth spots in the division respectively.
Only a point separated the sides at the end of last season's First Division promotion campaign, and Largs boss Stuart Davidson is hoping Thistle can get back to winning ways.
He said: "This is a test of character for us this weekend. It is all very well winning 5-0, 7-0, or 9-0, as we did in previous weeks but we just got beat 1-0 at Troon, and we need to make sure we get a reaction from the boys.
"We need to be at our very best on Saturday to make sure we get all three points. It is a highly competitive league, as results have shown last weekend, and we need to make sure we are moving in the right direction.
"We had some really good competitive games with Cambuslang last season, and I am sure this Saturday will be no different."
Looking at the defeat to Troon on Saturday, the boss admitted: "I thought Troon started well and got in our face and competed. That is normally the way we start but they got the upper hand.
"They got their free kick early doors and it was some hit, and after that, they had something to fight for.
"Troon had a couple of wee chances and had some pressure after that but nothing clear cut.
"We improved and showed we had some good attacking options and made a lot of opportunities, but it didn't seem to happen for us.
"In recent weeks with all the goals we had scored, everything was going in for us, and sometimes that does worry you as you don't want to use it all up at the one time.
"At the end of the day, Troon got off to the better start, and we shouldn't let teams get into that position, and we need to work hard to make sure that that doesn't happen. 
"You could say we were unlucky with the amount of chances but we shouldn't have to rely on luck."
Asked about Nade's challenge on Thistle keeper Sean Graham which caused consternation among the travelling support, Davidson said: "Nade is a big physical striker with great experience and he knows how to use his body well. We have had red cards for much less, and Sean was in bits afterwards, and wasn't at training on Monday evening with sore knees and hips. I was very surprised the referee didn't issue a red card.
"And as play was held up for five or six minutes in the second half, I was surprised that only a few minutes injury time was played.
"Keeper Blair Cousar has been doing some more training, and we will have to see when Sean recovers."
Asked regarding team selection for the Troon encounter, and why big signing Mark Millar didn't initially feature, Davidson said: "Mark had obviously been suspended for a few weeks and it is hard to take players out of a winning team. With Scott Adam, he had hurt his hip at Arbroath, and he had pulled out of training last Monday, although he did train on Wednesday."
"We have had some big scores recently, and we have showed a bit of ruthlessness.
"We have some great competition in the side, and it makes it very hard for me to take a player out of that side if they have been doing well, but there are always other players waiting to come on and make a difference."
"Credit to the players for doing so well on our winning run. It was a setback on Saturday, but we are looking to bounce back this weekend."
