The Thistle travelled to face Dunalba in this league encounter with significant squad issues due to injuries, suspensions and other commitments.  However, despite enjoying the majority of possession throughout the first half, the failure to capitalise on a number of opportunities meant that the scoreline remained close.

Stanic opened the scoring with a sublime first time effort and then again shortly after to make it 2-0.  The hosts then pulled one back, pouncing on a fortuitous ricochet.  Stanic then completed his hat-trick before half time.

The Edinburgh side then clawed another goal back to reduce the deficit just after the restart.  Thistle then rallied. Cartwright calmly slotting home from close range before Stanic bagged another brace, with Bauros and McQue completing the convincing 8-2 scoreline.
