Partick Thistle have hit out at Inverness for refusing to reschedule next month’s game between the sides in the Highlands.

Thistle approached Caley with a view to moving the Saturday March 25 match so it does not clash with Scotland’s opening Euro 2024 qualifier against Hampden, which kicks off an hour earlier at 2pm.

But Inverness cited hospitality bookings as a reason for not considering another date.

A Thistle statement read: “The club is disappointed to inform supporters that our game against Inverness at the Caledonian Stadium next month will take place as scheduled on Saturday 25th March with a 3pm kick-off.

“We approached Inverness CT late last month to request the game be moved to avoid a clash with Scotland v Cyprus on the same afternoon (2pm), as we know many Jags supporters would wish to attend or watch both matches.

“However, we were informed that the hosts would be unwilling to move it due to their matchday hospitality being fully booked for this particular fixture. We understand Inverness CT only sell matchday hospitality for a handful of selected games.

“The irony is not lost on the club that after seven successive midweek fixtures against this opposition, we are unable to move to a Friday night (or other non Saturday slot) on the one occasion many of our fans would have welcomed that.”
