Thistle romp to victory

Simon Donnelly curled in a 20-yard free-kick to haul Partick level, before Stephen McKeown put them into the lead with a deft chip.

Two minutes after the restart Steve Lovell powered in goal number three, but Baird hit back with an easy finish on the rebound for his second of the match to make it 3-2.

United took control and added two further goals to secure the win, Steve Lovell bursting through to score with a controlled finish, leaving Paul Cairney to round off the win after good work from Donnelly.
