On 26 minutes Mick McCann doubled the home side’s advantage and ten minutes later Chris Dallas (above)scored his first goal for the club to make it 3-0 at the break.

Five minutes after the restart David Gray (bottom right) slotted home a spot kick to for number four.  Thistle had a sting in the tail and hit a consolation through none other than Glens legend Gareth ‘Bo’ Armstrong.
