93’Full Time Report

Thistle are undone by one freak goal, a minute after Jamie Sneddon had saved a Shaw penalty, when a clearance hit off the unfortunate Kevin Holt and flew into the net, and one quality finish from Shaw. 

Thistle put a lot into this game but after falling behind rarely looked like finding a way back into the match. 

 
93’Full Time
90’+02’Thistle Booking - Richard Foster
 
90’

Neither Gordon nor MacIver can direct a McKenna cross goalwards. Thistle have never given up but they have lacked today the quality needed in the final third. 

87’Kilmarnock substitution: Innes Cameron replaces Fraser Murray
87’Kilmarnock substitution: Calum Waters replaces Oli Shaw
 
86’

Smith his able to get his head to a lofted McKenna cross from the right but he can't get any power in his header and it is an easy save from Hemming. 

 
83’

Bannigan loses the ball deep inside his own half putting Thistle under pressure but Mayo is on hand to clear McKenzie's cross. 

 
81’

Smith does well to switch the ball to the left but there is just a shade too much pace on his pass to allow Foster to collect and Hemming gathers before going down injured. 

 
80’

Tiffoney's corner goes deep to the back post. Mayo manages to head the ball back towards goal but Hemming is there to collect. 

79’Thistle corner from the left
 
78’

A Foster cross is cleared only as far as Docherty. The Thistle captain has time and space but can do no more than send a tame effort over the crossbar. 

76’Thistle substitution: Ross MacIver replaces Brian Graham
75’Kilmarnock substitution: Brad Lyons replaces Scott Robinson
 
75’

Foster crosses from the left and Graham twists his head to reach but his header goes just over the bar. Thistle need a goal and soon. 

 
71’

Tiffoney's corner is delivered to a good area but nobody is able to get on the end of it. 

70’Thistle corner from the right
67’Thistle Booking - Scott Tiffoney

Tiffonery can have no complaints as he goes to ground inside the box looking for a penalty. 

66’Thistle corner from the left
64’Goal Kilmarnock! Oli Shaw
Thistle 0 - Kilmarnock 2

If the first Killie goal was a freak then there is no denying the quality of the second as Shaw shoots powerfully and high past Sneddon from the edge of the box. 

62’Thistle substitution: replaces Zak Rudden

Shea Gordon replaces Zak Rudden. 

62’Thistle substitution: Cammy Smith replaces Kyle Turner
 
61’

It looks as if Thistle are set to make a double change. 

 
60’

Crowd: 4,315

 
59’

Tiffoney pushes a pass to Turner to his right and Turner's powerful drive thumps off a defender and goes clear. 

 
57’

Hemming makes a good catch from McKenna's cross. 

 
55’

Thistle are close to an equaliser as Graham lifts a cross to the back post where Rudden heads wide. 

51’Goal Kilmarnock! Kevin Holt (own goal)
Thistle 0 - Kilmarnock 1

It's a freak goal as a clearance thumps off Kevin Holt and flies past Sneddon and into the corner of the net. So harsh on Sneddon after his penalty save just a minute earlier.

50’Saved Thistle

Sneddon goes to his left and saves Shaw's penalty. The ball runs loose at for a second it looks as if the rebound will produce a goal but the ball is sent high over the bar. 

49’Penalty Kilmarnock

McKenzie works the ball to the feet of Robinson who is adjudged to be fouled just at the edge of the box. 

 
48’

Foster misjudges a high ball but Kilmarnock can't take advantage with Alston shooting wide from a tight angle. 

 
47’

Hemming gets a strong fist to Turner's free kick to get the ball clear. 

 
46’

Thistle win a free kick wide on the left after a foul on Tiffoney. 

 
45’

We're back underway. 

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

It's been a good, exciting game of football but it remains goalless at half-time. 

To my biased eyes Thistle have had the better of things with Hemming making a good stop near his front post to deny Tiffoney. 

Kilmarnock though had the game's best chance so far with Sneddon making an excellent save to deny Shaw. 

Indeed the visitors definitely finished the half on top and at that point Thistle would probably not have been unhappy to hear the half-time whistle. 

All to play for though in the second 45 minutes. 

 
45’Half-Time
 
43’

It's Kilmarnock that are finishing the half the stronger and it takes a well judged challenge from Mayo to nudge the ball to safety after Docherty concedes possession cheaply in midfield. 

 
42’

And from the corner that follows Kilmarnock are a whisker away from taking the lead. Thistle don't deal with the corner effectively and from close range a header just clears the bar and lands on top of the Thistle net. 

42’Kilmarnock corner from the right

Holt almost slices a clearance into his own net. 

 
38’

Graham has the ball outside the Kilmarnock box. There are no options either in front or to either side of him so he shoots for goal himself and his effort is too far wide. 

 
37’

The corner has Thistle under a bit of pressure before McKenna is able to clear an awkward bouncing ball. 

37’Kilmarnock corner from the right

Holt gets across quickly to make an important clearance. 

 
29’

The corner is well defended. Killie do pick the ball up again but when a cross comes over Sneddon is there to claim the ball. 

29’Kilmarnock corner from the right
 
27’

Sneddon makes a great save with his legs to deny Shaw as the Thistle defence is opened up for the first time. 

 
27’

Bannigan touches the free kick to Tiffoney to his right and his shot is quickly blocked. 

 
26’

Turner is tripped as he cut across the pitch near the edge of the Killie box. 

 
24’

Hemming gets his fingertips to a fierce Tiffoney cross. Thistle pressing hard at the moment. 

23’Thistle corner from the left

Hemming makes a good stop low at his right hand post to keep out Tiffoney's shot and then makes a good, confident catch from the Turner corner that follows. 

 
21’

Turner is a little late with a challenge near the edge of the Killie box. There is an angry reaction from a Kilmarnock player but no yellow card for Turner. 

 
18’

Kilmarnock manager Tommy Wright is clearly unhappy about something and play is stopped as he is booked. 

 
17’

Turner's free kick though is a poor one and is comfortably cleared. 

 
16’

Killie can't clear the second of Turner's two corners. Tiffoney picks up the ball on the right and he is fouled as he tries to force his way into the box. 

15’Thistle corner from the left
15’Thistle corner from the left
 
14’

After a fairly frantic opening the game is starting to settle down. 

 
09’

Thistle easily deal with a poor corner kick. 

09’Kilmarnock corner from the right

It's a great challenge from Mayo on Robinson  as Thistle looked for an offside flag as Killie break. 

 
07’

Hemming is in action again as he whips the ball off the feet of an advancing Rudden. 

 
07’

Turner's corner goes deep. Mayo keeps things alive by heading the ball on but Hemming takes charge and collects the ball. 

06’Thistle corner from the left
 
04’

First threat from Kilmarnock as Murray finds space as Killie break. He gets into the Thistle box where his curling shot is headed clear. All the early signs are that this is going to be a good, open game of football. 

 
03’

Thistle have been on the front foot in the early stages and a Turner ball into the box is just a shade too far ahead of Rudden. 

00’Thistle corner from the right

And attack they do forcing an early corner when Docherty's drive is touched wide of goal. 

 
00’

Kilmarnock kick the game off and Thistle will attack the John Lambie end in the first half. 

 
00’Kick-Off
 
00’Introduction

Thistle welcome Kilmarnock to Firhill with the old stadium celebrating its 112th birthday today. 

The team that Ian McCall has selected that will hopefully mark the occasion with a win shows two changes from the side that started at Inverness last weekend. 

In come Ciaran McKenna, fully recovered from what had looked a nasty injury at Arbroath last month, and Zak Rudden. 

Olatunji Akinola and Cammy Smith are the two players that make way for McKenna and Rudden's return.
