Airdrie Utd 0-1 Partick Thistle

ALBA Challenge Cup

Challenge Cup holders Airdrie United were dumped out of the competition at the first hurdle thanks to Liam Buchanan's goal for Partick Thistle.

Thistle, beaten by Airdrie in last season's semi-final, dominated the first half and Buchanan missed the best chance, his angled drive going wide.

But he raced clear to fire past Stephen Robertson after 51 minutes.

The keeper denied Robertson a second, while new Airdrie signing Frank Lagana sent a drive against a post.

Airdrie Utd: Robertson, Smith, Lovering (Waddell 73), McDonald, Donnelly, Nixon, Trouten (Gemmill 68), McLaughlin, Keegan (Watt 68), Baird, Lagana.
Subs Not Used: McCabe, Hollis.

Booked: Lagana.

Partick: Tuffey, Paton, Boyle, Maxwell, Robertson, Archibald, McKeown (Hamilton 76), Rowson, Buchanan, Doolan (Erskene 46), Hodge (Cairney 71).
Subs Not Used: Corrigan, Hinchcliffe.

Goals: Buchanan 51.

Att: 1,325
