Assistant manager Martin Crawford believes that Largs have something to prove as they bid to get an away win at Troon this Saturday.
Although there was an over-riding sense of disappointment on Saturday that Thistle didn't get victory at home to lowly Rossvale, it was the first clean sheet of the league season.
Crawford said: "A clean sheet is always desirable and it is something we always aim for; we don't always achieve it, but it was good to get it on Saturday and is something to build on defensively going forward.
"It was a bit of a hit and miss kind of game for us."
"The boys got off to a slow start and picked up a bit later on - we have a young team and are still evolving.
"With Rossvale down to ten men for the last ten minutes, we have to take advantage of these situations."
"We lost out 1-0 about the same time last year at Portland Park," said Crawford, "and although they haven't been great in the league, Troon are always a challenge.
"But I believe we have definitely have enough in our side with which we can cause them trouble and get a victory if we apply ourselves properly.
"That was part of the problem - I only think we played at around 50% of our capability on Saturday, and we need to significantly up it this weekend."
"There was an element to our play that was panicky, and we didn't have enough penetration and were not quick enough to second balls from defence and midfield - these are all things we will be working upon in training this week."
"The only time where we really got in behind Rossvale was when Jamie McKenna was breaking into his stride and chopped down - it was the only real time we asked Rossvale the question, and it wasn't enough, and we will be working on that too."
"We managed to score three goals against a team of Auchinleck's calibre which shows what the lads are capable of, and we have managed some great victories against the likes of Clydebank and Hurlford, so we really have nothing to fear going into this Troon encounter."
The Thistle assistant boss praised midfielder Stuart Faulds' role (pictured) in midfield this season and said: "He has been a revelation for us this season and although he is not often in the limelight we shouldn't under-estimate what he does for the team.
"It is easy to miss but what he does is very fluid when he gets on the ball and he tidies up and puts in all the groundwork to allow others to play."
Midfielders Ben Black (ankle) and Blair McIntyre are likely to miss out again this weekend and Largs may re-shuffle the pack to freshen things up for this weekend. 
McIntyre had a recent hand operation, while midfielder Thomas O Donoghue is out long-term with a jaw injury.
