Partick Thistle 2-1 Ross County

By Sandra Brown

SFL

Ross County blew the chance to narrow the gap on leaders Dundee as they failed to make their possession count.

Partick Thistle always looked dangerous on the break, mainly through Liam Buchanan who slotted the ball home to open the scoring after half an hour.

Early in the second half, Thistle's Brian Hodge beat Michael McGovern with a stinging shot from 20 yards.

Sub Andrew Barrowman pulled one back for County with 15 minutes remaining but Thistle held on for the points.

The lively Buchanan beat the County offside trap for Thistle's opener. The ball was played over the top of the visitors' defence, the flag stayed down, and the striker fired past Michael McGovern.

County, though, had plenty of other chances, with the Jags' Jonny Tuffey saving well from Garry Wood and Scott Morrison.
