Sizzling Conor Sammon to pounce against Celtic

Former Hearts man Connor Sammon has netted five goals in six games for Partick

William Hill Scottish Cup fifth round
BBC1 Scotland, 12.15pm Saturday 

Partick Thistle have a free hit at Celtic and if the Jags are going to go down fighting, Conor Sammon is worth a small investment to net.

Celtic usually bounce back after a defeat and they should have too much for their Glasgow rivals at a half-empty Parkhead.

They have Zenit St Petersburg at home in the Europa League this week, but injuries will prevent Brendan Rodgers from making wholescale changes.

Irish striker Sammon is in a fine run of form with five goals in six games and hit the inside of the post against Rangers in midweek. If Thistle can score, it's likely to be through him and he takes penalties too.
