92’Full Time Report

Leading by a Zak Rudden goal at half-time Thistle produce a scintillating second half display and run out emphatic 6-1 winners. 

Brian Graham doubles the Thistle lead after 52 minutes before before Xak Rudden's second of the night made it 3-0 five minutes later. 

Scott Tiffoney made it 4-0 just after the hour mark with sub Connor Murray getting in on the act with a 5th goal. 

5-0 became 6-0 when Brian Graham tapped home after a Murray shot came off the post. 

A late David Moyo goal denied Thistle a clean sheet but took little gloss off a quite sensational at times second half display.

61’Hamilton Academical substitution: David Moyo replaces Marley Redfern
61’Goal Thistle! Scott Tiffoney
Hamilton Academical 0 - Thistle 4

Thistle are running riot here and it's a magnificent fourth goal. The Accies defence is sliced open as Tiffoney and Graham work a slick one-two with Tiffoney finishing confidently.  

 
60’

Popescu ends up on the ground as the corner comes over. He looks at the referee looking for something but that would have been the softest of penalties. 

59’Hamilton Academical corner from the right
57’Goal Thistle! Zak Rudden
Hamilton Academical 0 - Thistle 3

Thistle have a third goal. Graham touches the ball back into the path of Rudden whose low shot wrong foots Fulton who watches the ball find the net. 

 
56’

Hamilton can't deal with Bannigan's free kick and Tiffoney again collects and delivers another excellent ball across the face of goal but this time no Thistle player is on the end of it. 

 
55’

Rudden holds the ball up well and draws a foul from the Hamilton defender winning Thistle a free kick in a dangerous position. 

52’Goal Thistle! Brian Graham

51’

Hamilton are unable to make anything of MacDonald's corner. 

51’Hamilton Academical corner from the right

Mayo gets just enough of a header to get a dangerous ball clear albeit at the expense of a corner. 

 
50’

Tiffoney gets the ball over from the left. Graham is able to glance a header towards goal but can't get enough power on it or sufficient direction to get away from Fulton. 

 
48’

Bannigan takes the free kick and finds the head of Rudden but Fulton is well placed to save. 

 
48’

Thistle win a free kick about 30 yards out and left of centre. A little too far out for a direct effort on goal. 

 
47’

First chance of the second half comes the way of the home side. Matheson has an opportunity at an angle on the right hand side of the box but be loses balance a little as he shoots and the ball goes wide. 

 
45’

McKenna powers down the right. Thistle look for a corner when he crosses but there is no joy there. 

 
45’

Thistle get the second half underway. 

 
45’Kick-Off (2nd half)
45’+03’Half Time Report

It's not been a great advert for the cinch Championship but the better of the football in a game low in quality has come from Thistle. 

Thistle took an early lead when Zak Rudden hooked home a Cammy Smith corner after just 6 minutes. 

Thistle though had to reorganise as Holt was injured the corner and was unable to continue. 

A glancing header from Graham nearly produced a second Thistle goal. 

The home side finished the half the stronger and have had some joy in wide areas but Sneddon has only been called into serious action once, saving well from Mullin. 

 
45’+03’Half-Time
 
45’

Minimum of three minutes additional time. 

 
45’

Bannigan takes the free kick and a Thistle head does get on the end of it but the ball drops harmlessly wide. 

 
44’

Smith is fouled as he tries to get clear down the right and Thistle will have a free kick and a chance to test the home defence. 

 
41’

Mullin gets up ahead of McKenna to reach MacDonald's free kick but Sneddon is off his line to take charge and collect the ball. 

 
40’

Foster tugs back Smith and Hamilton have a free kick wide on the right. There is a lecture for Foster but no yellow card. 

 
36’

Mullin gets away from Docherty in the middle of the pitch and advances to the edge of the box where his powerful shot is well saved and held by Sneddon. 

 
34’

Smith, Rudden and Graham try and create an opening at the edge of the box but the ball won't sit down for any of them. 

 
32’

Hamilton look for another corner as Virtanen comes down the right but much to the frustration of the home crowd a goal kick is signalled. 

 
31’

It's a packed six yard box that waits for MacDonald's corner. It's a decent corner but nobody is able to get a touch to and the ball goes out for a Thistle goal kick. 

30’Hamilton Academical corner from the right
 
29’

Foster puts over another decent ball from the left that Smith is too far away from getting on the end of it but Fulton collects. 

 
26’

Thistle aren't far away from a second. Tiffoney does well to work the ball out to Foster on the left and Graham glances his cross just wide of goal. 

 
24’

Hamilton are starting to get some joy down the Thistle right. On this occasion MacDonald's cross is cleared by Akinola. 

 
22’

There is half a chance for Smith at the edge of the box but he is unable to keep his shot down and it clears the crossbar. 

 
21’

A quick Hamilton break nearly catches Thistle out. Mullin collects the ball wide on the left and sends over a cross that Ryan get stretch far enough to get on the end of it. Best spell in the match so far from the home side. 

 
20’

Foster is back on his feet after picking up a knock at the corner of the Thistle box. He seems okay. 

 
19’

Not much has happened since the Thistle goal but Want does get his head to a Redfern free kick but it is an easy save for Sneddon. 

 
12’

Foster has switched to left to fill the role vacated by the injured Holt with sub McKenna slotting in at right back. 

09’Thistle substitution: Ciaran McKenna replaces Kevin Holt

It's an early end to Kevin Holt's night. He takes a kick to the face as Smith's corner for the goal comes over. There is little celebration at the goal as Brian Graham immediately signals for the physio to come on. After a lengthy delay Holt is replaced. 

06’Goal Thistle! Zak Rudden
Hamilton Academical 0 - Thistle 1

From that corner Thistle take the lead as Rudden bravely forces the ball in with boots flying. 

06’Thistle corner from the left

Thistle win the game's first corner. 

 
05’

It's been a largely uneventful first few minutes but Thistle are just starting to exert a little pressure on the Hamilton goal. 

 
00’

We're underway. Thistle will defending the goal at the away end in the first half. 

 
00’Kick-Off
 
00’Introduction

It's back to league action this evening at Hamilton and back to the starting eleven that impressed so much last time out in the league against Ayr United. 

Indeed it's back to the same seven substitutes as well.
