Match Report

 

 

Thistle produced a spirited performance against league champions, Lochend, which keeps their own promotion aspirations alive.

Despite this great result, the horrific news that Jamie McLean had suffered a fractured ankle in a terrible tackle blighted an otherwise positive evening.

Orr put the visitors ahead from the resultant freekick and also a rebound from a Deans penalty, both in the second half, to give hope.

The hosts reduced the deficit with a penalty but the Linlithgow side held on in a nervy injury time that spanned 8 minutes.
