Linlithgow Thistle claimed another three crucial points in the league race with a dogged defeat of Danderhall.

In a game that never saw Thistle behind, the vistors made it difficult for the hosts with the cancellation of their first two goals.

Taylor cracked the bar with a fine freekick, with Orr bagging the first of his brace with an instinctive strike from the rebound on 14 mins.  Thistle went on to hit the crossbar a further twice before Danderhall brought the score level before the break.

G Deans scored a cracking goal after great work on the left and impressive interplay early into the second half.  Again however, the visitors equalised shortly thereafter with an impressive solo goal.

Thistle were then made to work for their winning goal but it was a fine effort which saw Orr take on three defenders before dispatching the ball beyond the helpless goalkeeper, with ten minutes remaining.

Confidence appears to be building and, if Thistle are to look at the promotion places in this campaign, it has returned at the appropriate time.
