The Thistle took a massive step towards promotion with a crucial league victory at Peffermill against the impressive students.

Fresh from the Cup Final win on Friday evening, the two teams looked set to go toe-to-toe once again.  Although a little more nervy than previous encounters, the match was again entertaining for the neutral.

The Linlithgow side took the lead, with an Orr volley on 40 mins.  The University pulled it level early into the second half.  However, two great finishes by Stanic sealed the win.  Despite a few University opportunities, it was their keeper that once again shone to keep the scoreline at 3-1 until the final whistle.
