Thistle notch up the points against Airdrie

INTERIM Thistle manager Alan Archibald showed there was life after Jackie McNamara following Saturday’s 1-0 home win against bottom of the table Airdrie Utd.

But the 3,021 spectators had to wait until the 76 minute to see Thistle secure the winning goal following a Chris Erskine amazing match volley.

Thistle are now only five points behind league leaders Morton with two games in hand. They play the first of them away to Cowdenbeath on Tuesday.
