Coming off a great win at St Mirren last Saturday, it would be nice to have the chance to continue our good form this weekend but sometimes these breaks can be a blessing in disguise for you.
It gives players who are maybe struggling with niggles here and there a bit of time to recover and get fit again.
We are only five games into the league campaign but we have a chance to recharge the batteries after a high-tempo start to the season.
Sean Welsh and Jordan McMillan are both injured, but they are coming along well and Welshy started jogging on Monday.
Jordan joined in a couple of times last week after a really frustrating time with injuries.
I have been there myself many times; there is nothing worse but the only thing you can do is stay positive.
It has been a hard start to the season for him, but he is a great character about the place, you hear him before you see him! He has stayed positive and hopefully he will be back as soon as possible.
The important thing is that we don't rush the lads back and do too much, too soon.
We will bring them back when they are ready and it will give us two more nice problems to solve when we pick a team for each game.
It has been a really good few weeks for us, but the Hearts game stands out as a missed opportunity. We dominated for the majority of the match and you could say it was two points dropped that night.
But we can't look at it like that, we are realistic. As long as we are here next year then every point will have been important to us along the way.
We are not daft, we are realistic and the players are, too. We are doing well just now, but as soon as we hit a sticky patch, we will be everyone's favourites to go down again.
There is a strong mentality in the dressing room, though.That was nurtured last season and even though we are in a different league this year, the boys are young, hungry and they show desire week in, week out.
We are delighted with the boys' attitude and workrate.There is no fear there. They realise that they are a good team and they have great belief in themselves.
I must also pay tribute to the Thistle fans, who have followed the team in great numbers so far this season.
It gives the players a huge lift when they see the crowds we have at Firhill and away from home, and hopefully we can keep giving them plenty to shout about this year.
I think we've taken people by surprise so far, both in terms of how we play the game and how we compete.
We respect everyone we come up against, but we don't fear them. I wouldn't say we bully teams, but we get stuck in and compete.
Alan Archibald mentioned after the game last Saturday that the only thing that has been missing so far was a league win at Firhill but that will come.
To go to places like Ross County and St Mirren and win is terrific and the players deserve a lot of credit for that.
There is a mentality in the squad that has been here since we came in and that will stand us in good stead.
