Match Report

After winning all three of their League ties, the commencement of the League season brought disappointment with 11,000 fans leaving Tannadice convinced they had just witnessed highway robbery. To be fair, however, at no time did United reproduce their League Cup form and failed to breach a stuffy Thistle rearguard. Partick took the lead on the quarter of an hour mark, when Billy Hainey blasted the ball past Sandy Davie. Four minutes after the restart, United got back on level terms, when Jimmy Briggs' longrange pass found Doug Moran who coolly brought the ball down and slammed it past Nivea. Almost immediately, however, Billy Hainey had restored Thistle's lead which, despite non stop pressure, United failed to negate.
