It has been a remarkable start to the season for the First Division champions, who sit fourth in the SPFL Premiership standings heading into the international break after wins at Ross County and St Mirren and draws at home to Dundee United and Hearts.
And, after seeing his side leave it late to claim all three points in Paisley at the weekend as goals from Kallum Higginbotham and Ross Forbes earned them a dramatic victory, Archibald has thanked their supporters.
He said: "I was delighted to get the goals for the fans as well, I would have loved us to have scored at the other end in front of them.
"It can be a bit patronising when a player or a manager comes out and says that the fans make a difference but they do make a difference when the support is positive.
"Believe it or not a player doesn't like someone shouting at them but the support we've been getting has been all positive and we are delighted to receive that kind of backing."
Having starred on their return to Scotland's top tier in the opening weeks of the campaign, Jags now have a well-earned rest as the domestic schedule comes to a halt.
Thistle are next back in action when they host Aberdeen on September 14 and Archibald reckons the break has come at an ideal time for his side.
He said: "It would have been different had we lost because it would have been a long two weeks stewing on a defeat.
"The fact we won means we go into the break with a good feeling and it also gives us a couple of weeks to get the likes of Sean Welsh and Jordan McMillan fit."
Meanwhile, Thistle's trip to Inverness on Saturday, October 19, has been pushed back to the Sunday with a 12.45pm kick-off. The match will be live on Sky Sports.
And the League Cup clash against Dundee United at Tannadice will go ahead on Wednesday, September 25, at 7.45pm.
