Thistle ran out worthy winners in this hotly contested six-pointer.

An early lead, with a sublime lob from Stanic, coupled with a fine Bauros finish, set the tone for the first half, with the hosts dominating the first 45 minutes.  Indeed, Robb had the ball in the net to make it three, but was wrongly adjudged to be offside, even to the match official’s own admission.

The second half saw the visitors mount a strong attack, securing one goal after 60 minutes, a fortuitous deflection spinning out of the reach of Simpson in the Thistle goal, which made Thistle panic at times.

Despite this, Thistle had numerous chances to increase their lead but found the goalkeeping of the Mayfield keeper (and substitute keeper) to be in top form.

This victory secures the top spot for the Thistle and the challenge hots up with the start of midweek games commencing on Monday.
