Thistle started the final home game of the season minus Mark Mckeever who was suspended , Graham Gracie who was ill, Ryan Innes who has a broken bone in his foot and ankle damage and Andy Brown although named on the bench was struggling with a hamstring injury.Once again like last week at Maryhill Thistle started very well and were soon 2 goals to the good through Ross McGeachie and Matty Clarke but should have gone in it the interval at least 4 in front but for missed chances .
Dunipace came out for the second half in determined fashion and quickly set about reducing the leeway which like last week was made easily by a horrendous second half display by the home team which resulted in a 5 3 defeat. The only highlight of the second 45 mins. was a tremendous finish by Brian Jack which capped a hard working display by the mid fielder so Brian is today’s man of the match.
This game has been moved once again from wed, 25th May to Wed 3rd. lets hope it’s third time lucky.

The stats page has been updated up to and including yesterday’s game at Maryhill.
Despite assuring themselves of staying in the First Division with the win over St Anthony’s in midweek, Thistle didn’t down tools and played their part in what was one of the highest scoring games of the whole league season. A nightmare of a game for defensive purists but it kept the majority of the crowd entertained until the final whistle.
