Dundee v Arbroath KO 15:00 29/02

Arbroath 2 – 1 Partick Thistle




Arbroath 2 – 1 Partick Thistle

The Lichties got back to winning ways today at Gayfield. A goal in the 6th minute from Michael McKenna directly from a corner kick gave the Lichties the perfect start before Craig Wighton scored on his Arbroath debut in the 34th minute after smashing Jason Thomson’s pass past Scott Fox to make it 2-0.

Fox punched another McKenna corner off his line before Thomas O’Brien had a drive run across the line as the Lichties looked for a third in a first half they dominated with the wind at their backs.

As expected Partick Thistle came out for the second half looking to use the wind to their advantage but failed to really test Derek Gaston in the Arbroath goal.

A fantastic team effort the Lichties battled and defended chasing every ball with Michael McKenna covering nearly every inch of grass.

In the 5th minute of injury time Brian Graham pulled a late, late consolation goal back for Partick Thistle.

A fantastic win and great home debuts by Dale Hilson and Wighton but overall a fantastic team performance!

C’mon the Lichties!
