Tomi Adeloye looks to be rediscovering his form on loan at Partick Thistle as he has settled back into life quickly in the Scottish Championship.

Despite being yet to start a game in his time north of the border, Adeloye has been enjoying a fruitful spell during his early days with Thistle, coming off the bench to find the back of the net twice during his four substitute appearances.

Brian Graham has been continuing to lead the line from the start for Kris Doolan’s side, but Adeloye has been carving out a role for himself as an impact sub, as he has the second highest goals per minute ratio in the division.

Both of his goals have come within four minutes of coming off the bench as he has picked up where he left off with Ayr United two seasons ago.

The Advertiser spoke to Matt Greer of the Draw, Lose or Draw podcast to find out how the Swindon loanee was getting on away from the County Ground.

Greer said: “Adeloye’s in the unfortunate position of competing for a place against our talisman, Brian Graham, who is unlikely to be dropped unless he is injured or suspended. Despite this, he’s managed to grab a couple of goals from the bench.

“His first, away at Morton, was particularly impressive, showing terrific pace and power to outmuscle a defender, before bending a left foot effort beyond the goalkeeper.

“He’s unquestionably second in the pecking order, with last season’s back-up striker Anton Dowds being loaned out since Adeloye’s arrival.

“Fans are excited to have a player seemingly capable of making an impact from the bench.

“Both of his finishes were really composed and well-executed. We’ve had plenty of strikers in recent years who have failed to make any impact from the bench, but Adeloye has already.”

The 27-year-old became something of a figure of fun for Swindon last season as he struggled to make an impact on the first team, but being back in the division where he thrived for Ayr United in 2021/22, netting 11 goals, has seen him regain his confidence.

Greer said: “I think you’re always going to get that excitement [from the fans] if you sign a player who has a track record of scoring goals in your league.

“I’d guess he feels confident in a league he’s already scored goals in. He’s always made himself available and hasn’t shied away after a missing a chance. He looks happy and comfortable with his current role.

“I wouldn’t say he’s lacked confidence, just a little bit of match sharpness at the start."
