Archibald nears return for Jags

Partick Thistle captain Alan Archibald
Archibald has been out of action for Thistle since March

Partick Thistle captain Alan Archibald is closing in on a return from long-term knee ligament injury.

The 30-year-old defender has not played since the Scottish Cup draw with Rangers at Ibrox in March.

But the former Dundee United centre-half is scheduled to turn out for the reserves against Clyde on 12 November.

Once described by Jags boss Ian McCall as 'Mr Partick Thistle', Archibald has been granted a testimonial season by the Glasgow club.
