Partick Thistle 0-1 Ross County


Steven Craig's early strike was enough to secure an unlikely 1-0 win for Ross County over 10-man Partick Thistle.

Partick could have taken the lead after six minutes when Steven Lennon's goal-bound effort saved by Tony Bullock.

The visitors stunned Firhill a minute later when Craig nodded home Scott Morrison's free-kick from close range.

Thistle were reduced to 10 men just before the interval when John Robertson was dismissed for a stamp on goalscorer Craig.
