After seeing his side storm back to the top of the Irn-Bru First Division with a 7-0 demolition of Airdrie United last weekend, there are few issues to sort on the field of play.
The problems arise when he has to choose his starting line-up for the next fixture, with those who have stepped into the breach in recent weeks – including Conrad Balatoni and Ross Forbes – impressing in place of their elder team-mates.
Simon Donnelly took the training yesterday morning as the Firhill boss collected his Uefa Pro Licence at a ceremony in Belfast.
And the assistant manager admits the decisions about who to entrust with a starting jersey are becoming increasingly difficult to make.
Donnelly said: "Without it being a cliche, these are the problems you don't mind. You want selection headaches on a Friday because your players have been playing well.
"The guys who have come in have done really well and we won 7-0 last weekend without Alan Archibald and Hugh Murray, who have been first-class for us.
"Having that competition brings out the best in the boys. They cannot rest on their laurels because they know they could be out the team if they are not at the levels we are looking for.
"We start thinking about it as soon as the final whistle has gone on a Saturday, and then we start working through the week with it.
"Hopefully the boys took a lot of confidence from the Airdrie United win last week. It was entertaining to watch, from our side anyway, and great to be involved in. We hope we can take that into the next game.
"Airdrie's head went a wee bit, and the early goals helped us in that regard. We said to them at half-time not to take their foot off the gas.
"We wanted them to keep asking the question and getting more goals. That is one of the big plus points this season, we look as though we have got goals in us in every game. Everything just clicked for us last Saturday and we want to take that confidence into the Falkirk game now."
While Thistle have raced out of the blocks this season, Falkirk's title challenge has got off to a slower start.
Steven Pressley's side are currently 12 points adrift of Thistle, and Donnelly knows the Bairns will be eager to kick-start their promotion push at Westfield tomorrow.
He said: "They will be desperate to get points on the board. We know that it will be a hard game for us. We thought at the start of the season that they would be up there challenging.
"They will be looking to start the second quarter well. When they were here, they got it back to 2-1 and we were thankful that we got the third goal pretty quickly.
"We know it will be a hard game for us, but we have to just concentrate on ourselves and look to replicate the performance of last week.
"We have to keep doing what we have been doing and hopefully we will keep getting positive results."
