The Irn-Bru First Division league leaders pay a visit to Cappielow this weekend and Moore is hoping that the Greenock punters turn out in force to offer their support against the Jags.
With a demanding week ahead – Morton play Dunfermline after their clash against Thistle – Moore is hoping his side can get off to a positive start.
"We feel as though we are capable of giving Thistle a good game," said Moore.
"We know that they have been the team to beat so far, but it is not like Ross County last season where it looks as though one team is going to run away with it.
"I am confident that I have a squad here capable of giving them a game and getting a result."
Moore hopes that the clash will also bring out a bumper crowd.
"You can understand why attendances are down a bit because of the economic climate and the fact that it can be an expensive day going to watch a game of football," he said.
"But we are hoping that this type of game will capture the imagination of the support.
"Thistle have started really well and have had some good results, but I wouldn't say that I am too surprised.
"Jackie McNamara has assembled a good squad – we were interested in Hugh Murray ourselves – and they have started the season with a lot of belief.
"So hopefully it is the kind of game that will persuade people to come out and watch because I think they'll get a cracking match."
