45’Aberdeen substitution: Peter Pawlett replaces Kenny McLean
 
45’Kick-Off (2nd half)
45’+01’Half Time Report

It's been an absolute nightmare of an opening half for Thistle with Aberdeen racing into a five goal lead. 

Strangely some of Thistle play coming forward has been good but defensively it has been an entirely different story.

 
45’+01’Half-Time
 
45’

Minimum of one minute additional time to be played. 

45’Goal Aberdeen! Ryan Christie

Keown and then Fleming get the ball clear as Aberdeen threaten on the counter attack. 

43’Thistle corner from the left
43’Aberdeen Booking - Scott Wright
 
41’

Great chance for Azeez but his effort is blocked. The ball spins off the defender into the path of Doolan but up goes the flag for offside. 

39’Thistle corner from the right
 
37’

Barton clears as Aberdeen threaten down the left through Wright. With Edwards already booked he needs to e extra careful.

A lovely through ball just slides away from Doolan.

Some respite for Thistle as McLean curls the free kick well over the Thistle crossbar.

Logan has a chance at the back post but his shot is charged down. 

25’Goal Aberdeen! Jonny Hayes
Thistle 0 - Aberdeen 4

Thistle are sliced open down the right again. The ball falls nicely into the path of Hayes 6 yards out and he makes no mistake. 

 
23’

McCarthy is caught in possession which allows Hayes to shoot from the edge of the box but his effort goes wide. 

 
22’

Erskine's corner is just too high for Barton. 

21’Thistle corner from the right

Azeez is denied a goal by a finger tip save from Lewis after collecting a pass from Lawless. The ball squirms across the path of Doolan on its way out for the corner. . 

 
21’

Doolan plays a good ball up to the feet of Azeez. Azeez delays his shot and that allows a defender to come across and clear.

Again the flag goes up for offside as Doolan tries to get clear of the Aberdeen defence. 

 
18’

Lawless picks out Doolan inside the Aberdeen box but the flag goes up for offside. 

16’Goal Aberdeen! Scott Wright

Lewis, at a stretch, claims Erskine's corner. 

14’Thistle corner from the right

Azeez's effort is deflected wide for a Thistle corner. 

11’Goal Aberdeen! Scott Wright
Thistle 0 - Aberdeen 2

It's a nightmare start for Thistle. They, just, clear the corner but the pressure, aided by some poor defending, remains on the Thistle goal. Thistle look to have escaped when a header crashes off the underside of the bar but the ball falls to Wright and he fires low into the net. 

10’Aberdeen corner from the left
 
09’

Thistle are nearly handed an equaliser when Logan's poor clearance is gathered by Erskine but from the edge of the box he doesn't make clean contact with the ball and as a result drags his shot wide. 

 
08’

Aberdeen defend Erskine's free kick. Thistle do get the ball back and Lawless is able to push the ball wide to Lindsay but his cross is quickly blocked. 

 
07’

Thistle's turn to win a free kick. About 35 yards from the Aberdeen goal. 

06’Goal Aberdeen! Ryan Christie
Thistle 0 - Aberdeen 1

The free kick is aimed deep to the back post. The ball is headed clear but only as far as Christie who shoots low past Ridgers and into the corner of the net. 

 
05’

Aberdeen have a free kick in from the left touchline. 

 
02’

First shot at goal comes from the boot of Aberdeen's McLean but his effort clears Ridgers bar with a bit to spare.

Early stoppage to play for Aberdeen's Christie to receive a spot of treatment. 

 
00’Kick-Off
 
00’Introduction

A successful season 2016-2017 is rounded off this afternoon with a visit from Aberdeen with manager Alan Archibald's final team selection of the season showing a number of changes. 

Mark Ridgers replaced an injured Tomas Cerny at half-time on Thursday and Ridgers starts this afternoon with Ryan Scully taking up a slot on the bench. 

There are also starts for Ade Azeez, Niall Keown, Ryan Edwards and Andrew McCarthy. 

The substitute bench has a youthful feel to it as the aforementioned Scully is joined by Neil McLaughlin, Mark Lamont, Ross Fleming and Callum Wilson.
