Partick Thistle striker Conor Sammon says he can forge a productive strike partnership with Miles Storey.

Sammon scored his first Partick goal in Wednesday's 3-2 win over Motherwell, as Thistle ended a four-game winless run.

Storey provided the assist and Sammon, who is on loan from Hearts, believes the duo work well together.

"Myself and Miles' strengths, we love playing on the shoulder and in behind defences, putting teams under pressure using our pace," he said.

"We feel we can do that in games, we have that pace that defenders don't seem to like. Sometimes it can be a bit route one and direct, but if you're doing it the right way and it's working for you, then why not?

"I really enjoyed the game and I definitely think Miles did. I thought he was brilliant, setting up goals and always looking a threat, and unlucky not to get a goal himself in the second half."

Storey, who joined Partick in the summer from Aberdeen, also set up Ryan Edwards' strike.

Sammon, 31, hopes he can start scoring freely now that he has broken his duck in his 15th game of the campaign.

"It's huge for a striker," he added. "When you move to a new team you want to score goals, you want to score as soon as possible to really get that confidence again.

"So I am delighted to get it and really pleased to make a good contribution and hopefully that will be the first of many goals this season."
