Magnificent seven

IT was seventh heaven for Partick Thistle on Saturday when they demolished Airdrie with a seven goal rout.

It was bad enough at half time when Thistle lead 5-0 - but worse was to follow after the break.

Goals came from Chris Erskine after justfour minutes, then Aaron Muirhead nets from the penalty spot seven minutes later. On the half hour mark Steve Lawless made it three, before Sean Welsh scored after 42 minutes. Erskine got his second to go into the turnaround.

Thistle always looked likely of scoring again and Kris Doolan obliged in the 57th minute with Ross Forbes rounding off the goal blitz 10 minutes from time.
