Thistle Sponsor: McNicoll Vehicle Hire
The Thistle travelled to Penicuik looking to avenge a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the hosts in a cup tie earlier in the season.
The first half was contested well, with periods of possession claimed by both sides. However, in terms of chances created, it was essentially only the visitors that carved out any real threat on goal. A few minutes before the break, a Jamie McLean throw in ended in the net after a melee in the home side’s six yard box, with the ball ricocheting off a defender. This seemed to settle the visitors
Into the second half and Thistle dominated. Excellent interplay during the second period culminated in a fine brace each for Orr and McLean.
Thistle now face Uphall Station on Monday evening.
