Dunfermline 5 Partick Thistle 1
Saturday 30 November 2019, Championship
The outcome of this match was more or less determined after four minutes. Kiltie dispossessed Tam O’Ware out on the right side and as he was about to put the trigger on his shot eight yards out, O’Ware took him down. Referee Mike Roncone pointed to the spot and then produced a red card for the Thistle captain. Kevin NISBET stepped up and sent the ball to Jamie Sneddon’s left. 1-0
MARTIN slotted past Sneddon at his near post and Lewis’ first goal since January 2015 made it 2-0 just six minutes later.
Nisbet was deemed to have been taken down by Reece Cole as he tried to control the ball and the referee was pointing to the spot again. NISBET stepped up again and this time buried the ball on the bottom left. 3-0
When Kakay headed the ball out from a corner it dropped for NISBET on the right side of the box and he drilled the ball into the far side of the net. 4-0
Nisbet the first half’s hat trick hero scored the Fifers fifth. It was just the fourth minute of the second half when Dow’s cross from near the right corner flag was cleverly turned back by Beadling for NISBET to convert from six yards. 5-0
With fifteen minutes remaining Devine held Miller and COLE struck the resulting 35 yard free kick sweetly into the bottom left of the home net. 5-1

Thistle have won three and lost two of their matches this season. In their first Championship match last Saturday at home to Queen of the South they came back from conceding a Willie Gibson goal to lead 2-1 but in 74 minutes their opponents equalised and it took a Scott Tiffoney goal five minutes from time to take all three points.
Dunfermline’s league season got off to a start with a 2-2 draw at Morton and after coming from behind to lead 2-1 lost a freak goal nine minutes from time. This season they have won three, drawn one and lost 1-0 away to Premiership opposition.
