KYLE TURNER has had to adapt to life at Firhill. But if the early indications are anything to go by, he has taken that change in his stride.

The 23-year-old, a summer addition at Firhill after his Dunfermline contract expired, has spent the majority of his career playing centrally but has found himself barrelling up and down the right wing in Ian McCall’s side in recent weeks as the league campaign has got off to a fine start.

Three wins from four Championship outings is promotion form but on a personal level, Turner has every right to be pleased with his start to life in Glasgow’s west end. Six assists already this season – two of which arrived via corner kicks in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Morton – would suggest the playmaker has quickly established himself as a key creative outlet for the Jags, both from open play and set-pieces. Even if the man himself is keen to focus on the collective.

“Listen, it’s not about me – I don’t really care about that,” he admitted. “It’s just about winning games of football. Three wins out of four in the league is a good start, isn’t it?

“Everybody is on the same wavelength as each other. You can see that in training as we play and get involved.

“We know what people like, what their strengths are, what their weaknesses are – we just need to play to them. It takes time to gel but you don’t get that in this league! You need to be winning games and we’re doing that.

“I’m just happy to be playing. I used to play out there [on the right wing] at Stranraer and at Dunfermline. I prefer playing in the middle of the pitch but out there I can come in and play with [Ross] Docherty and [Stuart] Bannigan, so it’s good.”

Thistle took an early lead at Firhill after Turner picked out Kevin Holt from a corner, and were 2-0 up and cruising shortly after the break when Zak Rudden lashed home Scott Tiffoney’s cross. Brian Graham added a third around the hour-mark – again courtesy of a Turner set-piece – but the midfielder was quick to point out that the Jags defence deserve their share of the spotlight too. Especially new arrival Tunji Akinola, who handled himself well despite facing a difficult opponent in Morton striker Gozie Ugwu.

“Big Tunji was brilliant on his home debut,” he added. “The back four were great again, and Shea [Gordon] came in at right-back. Boys just want to play and want to win and you saw that on the pitch.

“You need to stay concentrated. When you come out for the second half at 1-0, you know if you concede it will be a totally different game. We got the goal early in the second half with Zak and then Brian finished it off, so it was good.”
