But the Jags youngster is sure he has all the necessary tools to succeed thanks to the tutelage of Firhill legend Alan Archibald.
The 18-year-old has been a regular feature for the club's second string this season but has yet to make his mark in the first team.
The Firhill back four of Stephen O'Donnell, Conrad Balatoni, Aaron Muirhead and Aaron Sinclair have not conceded a goal in their last four league outings and youngster Sekhon knows he could have to wait a while for his chance to shine.
He said: "With the first team doing so well, it is hard to get into the squad. But I have been doing all I can and playing in the Reserve games.
"The younger boys at the club have been playing well this season and we are all pushing to get into the first team. We just need to be patient and wait for our chance.
"Since I have been at the club, the youth development has got better every year. It is looking good for the future.
"You see Stuart Bannigan coming through the system and the number of younger players in the first team, that is a great encouragement for the next lot of players coming through.
"Guys like Stephen, Conrad and the two Aarons are great role models for us.
"With me being a central defender, it is going to be hard to get in the team because the guys are doing so well at the moment.
"There is a great unity in the back four and a good partnership. If it is working well, it is not going to be changed.
"It is unfortunate for me but that is how football is."
Sekhon may not have had the opportunity to cut his teeth in the First Division but that hasn't stopped the defender learning all the tricks of the trade.
Interim boss Archibald has been the inspiration behind Thistle's recent shut-out spree and the former Falkirk kid reckons he has the perfect mentor.
Sekhon said: "Having someone like Archie at the club is invaluable for me.
"He gives you a lot of tips at training and helps you in the reserve games as well.
"The experience is amazing and he has really helped me in my career."
While Archibald's side look to clinch the First Division title this season, Sekhon has his own winner's medal in his sights this weekend as he represents Thistle in the Ramsdens Soccer Stars competition at the Kelvin Hall.
With a £1000 personal prize and £2000 cheque for the Jags' youth development scheme up for grabs, there is plenty at stake.
He said: "I am quite an avid gym goer. The first team have a lot of games coming up so it is a good chance for me to go along. I am honoured to represent the club.
"A lot of it is based on physical challenges and I am pretty athletic. The majority are founded on fitness levels so hopefully I can do well.
"I think I have got a good chance."
