Thistle and Maryhill produced an entertaining last game of the season despite having nothing to play for, the Jags made a few changes but although they didn’t reach the heights of last week, ended the season with a decent performance.
It could have been a drab end of season affair but Thistle had other ideas and got full revenge for their recent home hammering from the Bens.
Thistle came from behind and blew Burgh away with four goals in a devastating seven minute second half spell, but only after the visitors had gone down to 10 men.
Thistle are in seventh place in the league and as has become normal have more games left than anybody else with three still to play. If they win them all they will hold on to 7th spot but can’t finish any higher, a disappointing end to what looked like a promising campaign for most of the season.
Each week, the match report has nominated a Man of the Match and this has been compiled into a table for the season so far, based on two points for MoM and one for anybody else mentioned in the Best for Thistle on the Day summary.
So it’s no consolation for not having promotion to go for, but with three games to go most of the first team squad are still in with a shout. Here’s how the table looks after the Benburb game:

We are in negotiations with Audi for a brand new top of the range A6 for the winner but if that falls through there will probably be a momento of some description from the wee trophy shop up the main street.
Today’s league game at Maryhill has been called off due to the rain.
Next game is Monday night’s final league game with Johnstone Burgh, kick off 7:15pm
May got off to a howler on a chilly day as a depleted Thistle team fell to a heavy defeat after taking the lead, the Jags have now lost out on the chance of promotion with three games left and will see out the season in a mid table position.
