Match Report

Manager Jim McLean stuck by the same starting eleven for our second successive away fixture, though it was to be the man whom he brought on as a substitute who was to ultimately decide the issue. For long periods the flowing football which was the trademark of our early season form had Thistle bemused. All that was lacking was the end product Goals!

The introduction of Paddy Connolly twenty minutes from time was, however, to prove decisive. Within a couple of minutes of his introduction, Paddy picked up a Grant Johnson pass just outside the penalty area and brilliantly jinked his way into the box, leaving two Jags defenders in his wake before stabbing the ball past Nelson from 8 yards out. It was a goal worthy of winning more important matches than this, but four points from two awkward opening fixtures was the start all Tannadice fans wanted
