Partick Thistle boss Alan Archibald is unsure how long he will be without Kallum Higginbotham after the Englishman suffered a knee injury in Saturday's goalless draw at St Mirren.

Jason Naismith was cautioned for a crude lunge on the winger midway through the first half at St Mirren Park.

The challenge came shortly after the home support had been calling for a red card for Thistle right-back Jordan McMillan for a two-footed challenge on Jim Goodwin.

"I think it is six stitches he's got in a knee wound," said Archibald.

"It's just opened right up. I think the boy's blades or studs sliced his knee open.

"I didn't have a chance to speak to him and I never saw it closely. I was just more frustrated because I thought he was causing them problems down that side of the pitch.

"The lad was booked for the challenge and I'm not sure how bad it was, but it's right on the joint of the knee so it's a problem because it's probably going to keep opening up.

"I haven't spoken to the medical team but I think it'll be a couple of weeks anyway."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
