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."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
