PARTICK Thistle striker Kris Doolan has told his team-mates it is time they started chipping in with goals.

Alan Archibald’s side find themselves cut four points adrift at the bottom of the Ladbrokes Premiership table after Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Neil Lennon’s Hibernian.

Yet Thistle had chances to take something from the Energy Check Stadium, with Doolan guilty of failing to bury a second-half opportunity shortly after Adam Barton’s own-goal put the visitors ahead.

But the Thistle poacher reckons his colleagues cannot expect he and frontman Miles Storey to shoulder the scoring burden on their own. Thistle are the lowest scorers in the top flight with just 12 goals so far.

“I personally still feel confident in front of goal,” said Doolan “Scoring is what I do.

“I was unlucky with the chance I got. I was just trying to make sure I kept it down as those chances are the type that often end up going over the bar but the keeper just got a toe to it.

“But as a team we need to be scoring more. It’s not always the strikers who have to get the goals.

“The goals have to come from elsewhere, too, and as a team we need to be a bit more ruthless.”
