Partick Thistle 0-1 Airdrie Utd


Simon Lynch struck a last-gasp winner as Airdrie beat Partick Thistle to avoid automatic relegation and end the visitors' promotion hopes.

Thistle went close twice early on through Marc Twaddle and Liam Buchanan as they laid siege to Airdrie's goal.

But it was Airdrie who went home with the three pints after Lynch knocked the ball into the net from five yards out in the 90th minute.
