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."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
