The Thistle players celebrate with their jubilant fans
Partick Thistle survived a late scare to go through to the Division One play-off final and relegate Stranraer in Neil Watt's last game as manager.

Thistle goalkeeper Kenny Arthur saved well from striker Michael Moore to deny depleted Stranraer an opener.

Ian Ross drove home to give Stranraer late hope, but Mark Roberts curled home a deserved equaliser.

David Hamilton's spectacular bicycle kick was not enough for Stranraer as they lost 4-3 on aggregate.

  • Partick Thistle manager Dick Campbell:
    "It was never going to be a thing of beauty.

    "On Wednesday night, we were magnificent and the game was won there.

    "Today was a very nervy game for both sides, but the objective was to get to the final.

    "It's good for us that Peterhead have to come to Firhill for the first leg as our fans are like an extra man."
