Thistle’s unbeaten run comes to an end

IT was a double whammy for Partick Thistle when they lost 3-1 away to Morton and were knocked off their first division perch.

The defeat ended a Thistle run of seven undefeated league games. Kevin Rutkiewicz headed in Morton’s first at Cappielow on Saturday before Thistle levelled the score in the first half.

However two late Morton goals in the second half - another headed from skipper Mark McLaughlin and the other from David O’Brien - stamped the home side’s authority on the game.
