The Thistle travelled to Midlothian to face a dogged and determined Mayfield side, also battling for promotion.

It was the home side that took the early lead with an instinctive strike. They went on to dominate the full first half.

However, the old cliché of a game of two halves was not more so evident than in this game, with Thistle being the possessive, creative side in the second half.

Mitchell latched on to a loose ball in the penalty area 10mins into the second half to equalise. However, with balls cleared from the line and the Mayfield keeper pulling off a number of great saves, it felt that the winning goal would never come.

Despite this, an 89th minute penalty was awarded to Thistle after Robb was upended in the box. Unfortunately, the post came to the rescue of the home side and a share of the spoils was all that was on offer on Valentine’s Day.
