During Tuesday night’s audio commentary against Alloa Athletic we encountered a number of minor technological issues during the second half which interrupted our coverage of the match. We apologise to our listeners for the disruption of our coverage.
After assessing the problems, we are working with the club’s IT partner to have our equipment fully examined and repaired. As such, we are unable to provide an audio commentary service for tonight’s game against Kelty Hearts while those repairs are made.
Every effort was made to provide audio commentary of tonight’s game against Kelty Hearts but with repairs not yet complete, we felt it best to make sure the repairs had time to be made so that we can reliably provide our usual match commentary come the start of the competitive season. We are committed to providing comprehensive audio commentary through JagZone for the entirety of the campaign.
Sorry for any disappointment this may cause.
James Lyon's goal after 71 minutes is enough to give Thistle the win.
Taggart's neat through ball just runs away from McKenzie who has made a good forward run.
Lennon's excellent cross is scrambled clear for a corner.
The deadlock is broken as conditions worsen. Stanway shows good footwork to advance to the bye line where he cuts the ball to Lyon who lifts his shot from 6 yards out high into the net.
Lawless is able to play a pass to the feet of Trialist inside the Kelty box. He is quickly closed down though and can do no better than send his shot wide of goal.
Mitchell has to come a long way out of his goal to clear ahead of Barjonas as Kelty break after having cleared Turner's corner.
Lawless has the ball in the net for Thistle but in connecting with Turner's cross he strays offside.
It's been a keenly contested 45 minutes for a pre-season friendly but it hasn't , as yet, produced a goal. David Mitchell has been the busier of the two goalkeepers with a save with his legs to deny Barjonas the best of his stops.
Milne sees his effort from 8 yards out go narrowly wide after Jamieson punches clear a cross into his path.
Mitchell makes another good stop low to his left his time to push away a Higginbotham free kick after Austin was fouled on the edge of the Thistle box.
Graham's flicked effort following a cross from Trialist is cleared before a Lawless shot from the edge of the box just doesn't have quite enough dip on it to test the Kelty keeper.
Higginbotham sizzles in a low drive from the edge of the box that Mitchell is forced to make a good stop from holding the ball to his left.
Turner's low near post corner is easily cleared.
Dowds low cross is cleared at the expense of a corner.
Thistle give the ball away far too cheaply and Mitchell needs to come to the resce saving Barjonas' low shot with his legs.
Agyeman drags a shot across the face of the Thistle goal and eventually wide of Mitchell's left hand post.
Dowds flicks the ball towards goal but a Kelty defender is on hand to clear from close to his goal line in the first action of note.
