Dundee 1-0 Partick Thistle


Dundee stretched their lead at the top of the First Division to eight points with a win over Partick Thistle.

Leigh Griffiths' cross found the defender just outside the box and he blasted the ball into the roof of the net for his first goal of the season.

Neither goalkeeper was troubled in the second half as Dundee comfortably held on to their lead.
