93’Full Time Report

The Thistle side collapse to the ground in exhaustion. It was an absolutely terrific shift from the 10 men in the second half. Aberdeen didn't threaten Cullen too much in the second half.

Goals from Kevin Nisbet and Neil McLaughlin seal all three points in what was a very thundery second half with plenty of antsy play.
