Thistle boss Stuart Davidson believes the club are on the crest of a wave and is calling for their high level of performance to continue as they take on Glasgow giants Pollok in a pre-Christmas cracker.

It is a 1.45pm kick off at Barrfields and the Largs manager is hoping fans turn out in their droves after netting an amazing THIRTEEN goals in the past two games.

Both sides settled for a share of the spoils the last time they met in the second league game of the season at Newlandsfield Park, and with Largs flying high in third spot in the Premier, they will be wanting to put on a strong show.

Davidson said: "The boys have worked hard all season and you can't take that away from them, and the back four have also been great and solid at the back, and it is a real base for the rest of the team to go and play and score the goals."

"Pollok have quality all over the park, and we have to be at the top of our game. The high quality keeps coming and that is why we are in this league to test ourselves against the best sides.

"I truly believe on our park we can beat anybody on our day.

"Pollok had a good 4-0 win against Kilbirnie last week so we have got to work just as hard as against Cumnock to get the win."

The Thistle boss also praised two of the unsung heroes in wing backs Laurie McMaster and Martin Orr for their high standards of display off late.

He said: "They are continually putting in good performances. Laurie has had a tough time with illness and played through that, and Martin has also been top notch.

"First and foremost their job is to defend, and two of them have been magnificent."

Thistle have an injury concern over Ryan McKie who took a bad knock when scoring the seventh goal on Saturday.

Davidson said: "We are going to have to get it assessed - it is really disappointing and unlucky for Ryan as he has already sat out a lengthy spell this season, and I hope this latest one isn't too bad and he can shake it off."

The Largs boss added that while it has been great scoring a barrel-load of goals in recent weeks putting the opposition at 'sixes and sevens' quite literally, there were key points in each match which could have turned the game..

He said: "We don't turn up each week expecting to score as many. There are important moments in games, Kilbirnie had the good chance at 0-0 which Danny Farrell saved, and Cumnock missed a good opportunity at 2-0. It is good to see the boys working really hard and finishing other teams off."

However, there may be changes afoot for Largs with three players - midfielder Stuart Faulds (Ayr United), keeper Farrell and winger Blair Docherty (both Morton) - all due to complete their loan deals in January.

Davidson said he would be speaking to all three and their clubs in terms of opportunities for extending their loan deals.

Davidson added he would be looking to add other players to the squad in the new year.

And with Largs riding high, other clubs will be taking note, and Davidson said: "That is natural with the good results and performances but we have been building a team over the last couple of years, and are constantly improving - we are by no means the finished article, the boys have a good laugh, and it is a good place to enjoy your football."

Largs have drawn St Roch's at home in the Fifth Round of the Macron Scottish Cup. Davidson said: "It will be a tough game. I watched them earlier in the season and they are a tricky team and have enjoyed some good results. However, we wanted a home tie and we are confident we can get into the next round."

And Davidson was delighted with the good travelling support; he said: "The fans have been great - and they are very vocal and have provided great backing."
