Thistle looked to try and put their Royal albert performance behind them and finish the season on a high note as they looked for revenge for a 3-2 defeat at Johnstone in November.
Thistle’s last game of the 2014 – 2015 season was a crucial game for the Bens, only a win would save them from relegation to the Central Second Division. Thistle were safe and had nothing really to play for other than pride.
As Benburb were still awaiting completion of their new ground this game was played at Lochburn Park the home of Maryhill Juniors.
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.
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.
Thistle’s Denny hoodoo continued as they once again drew a blank and lost ground to the leading pack in the First Division. They can take some heart from a good performance though in a game they never looked like losing.
