45’Kick-Off (2nd half)
45’Half Time Report

A dreadfully poor defensive display from Thistle has left them trailing 2-0 at the break and lucky not be further behind. It leaves Thistle's promotion prospects hanging by a thread.

43’

Graham's knock down nearly falls into the path of Gordon.

 
41’

Smith flicks the ball goalwards but it is straight at Sneddon who makes an easy save. 

37’Thistle Booking - Richard Foster

Bannigan floats the free kick into the box. Tiffoney is on the end of it but his header strikes the crossbar.

Another excellent chance for East Fife. Murdoch crosses from the right and Denholm has a free header that he sends wide. 

 
24’

Only an excellent one handed save from Sneddon prevents Wallace finding a third goal for East Fife. 

 
20’

Swanson tries his luck from distance but his shot dips just a shade too late and clears the Thistle crossbar. 

16’Goal East Fife! Kevin Smith
East Fife 2 - Thistle 0

It's a nightmare start for Thistle. The ball sits up nicely for Smith and he smashes a shot past Sneddon. Thistle with it all to do now. 

 
15’

Thistle are close to an equaliser. Tiffoney crosses from the right that finds Gordon at the back post but his downward header bounces over the bar. 

13’Goal East Fife! Ryan Wallace
East Fife 1 - Thistle 0

Sneddon goes the right way but Wallace's penalty finds the bottom left hand corner. 

12’Penalty East Fife

Thistle are caught out by a quickly taken Murdoch free kick from near the halfway line and when a shot comes in it strikes the hand of Niang. 

 
11’

Tiffoney takes the corner but it is cleared at the front post. 

11’Thistle corner from the left
 
08’

Good take from Sneddon at the edge of his 6 yard box as a vicious cross comes in from the East Fife right hand side. 

 
07’

Both Tiffoney and Murray see shots blocked as the game starts to really open up. 

 
06’

It's East Fife's turn to threaten a goal and just for a second it looks as if McKinnon's shot has found the back of the net but thankfully for Thistle it's actually the side netting that he hits. 

 
05’

First chance of the game comes Thistle's way. Graham knocks the ball through for Tiffoney. His shot is blocked but spins into the path of Foster who sends his effort well wide. 

 
02’

Break in play after Bannigan picks up a knock but he's back on his feet and we're underway again. 

 
00’

Thistle wearing their change black kit get the game under way. 

 
00’Kick-Off
 
00’Introduction

After the disappointment of defeat at Dundee United in the Scottish Cup on Saturday attention returns in full to the search for league points which tonight takes Thistle east to face East Fife on a cold, cold night. 

Ian McCall makes three changes to the side that started in Dundee on Saturday. 

With injury denying him the services of Kieran Wright, Jamie Sneddon comes in to keep goal and there are also starts for Ryan Williamson and Connor Murray.
