Although Thistle played well they came away from their clash against Hibernian disappointed losing 1-0 following a Liam Craig’s goal in the 69th minute.
Thistle’s best chance came early in the second half when Kris Doolan was left one on one with keeper Williams but he couldn’t find a finish.
Williams also saved well from Elliott and Forbes as Thistle searched in vain for an equaliser in a night of frustration for the Jags.
Manager Alan Archibald made two changes to the team that drew 1-1 with St Johnstone for the visit of Hibs. Now back to full fitness, Scott Fox was restored in goal and Steven Lawless started ahead of Christie Elliott.
