Match Report

Thistle suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of the miners welfare side.

Having gone a goal behind, Thistle did respond and got the equaliser by way of a composed Jamie McLean conversion, coolly slotting beyond the keeper.

For the subsequent period of 15mins, the visitors dominated with quality interplay and a number of chances.

However it was the hosts that found the next goal and from this they notched a further two before the whistle, with hints of offside to both.

Into the second half and Danderhall again carved out a couple of goals before Porteous saw red.

Sturgeon and Swords narrowed the deficit with fine goals but the hosts ended the game with their seventh.

With other results being favourable, bizzarrely Thistle are not yet out if the promotion race.
