Auld Jag Posted March 5 Report Share Posted March 5 3 hours ago, The Thistle Archive said: All the post-match updates in place via the home page → ROVERS RUN ENDED AT FIRHILL ● Kyle Turner's excellent assist is his 19th in competitive action in less than 2 seasons. ● Brian Graham is on the ascent in all goals charts, and today moves outright into our All Time Top 40 League scorers chart with 37 goals to his name. ● Kris Doolan's Jags retire at half-time with a one nil lead for the third time in his four games. They've yet to concede a first half goal. ● Harry Milne registers his 5th assist of the season to go with his 5 goals, giving him a fine double figures return in competitive action. ● Scott Tiffoney nets his second brace as a Jag, following on from his League double away to Airdrie in March 2021. ● Aidan Fitzpatrick hits a new personal best of 13 consecutive appearances in competitive action. ● Referee Greg Aitken awards what can only be described as an embarrassing penalty award to Raith Rovers, mis-reading a situation directly in front of him. In his last 13 Thistle games he's awarded six penalties against Thistle and only one in favour. ● David Mitchell faces a Raith Rovers penalty for the second time this season, the first being the final nail in a 3-0 League defeat at Stark's Park in October. ● David Mitchell is the first Thistle goalie to save a penalty which preserved a winning clean-sheet in the League since Kenny Arthur did so at Pittodrie in February 2003. ● Stuart Bannigan, Jagzone man of the match, has yet to be booked in his testimonial year! ● Raith Rovers 14 game unbeaten run (reportedly their best in 30 years) comes to an end at Firhill. ● Kris Doolan, confirmed as permanent new manager the day before, is the 4th Partick Thistle gaffer to remain unbeaten in his first 4 competitive matches. Only Murdo MacLeod (5) and Alan Archibald (10) have been on longer runs. ongoing sequences: ● 37 consecutive competitive appearances for Jack McMillan, 9th Jul 2022 to date, a new personal best. (Longest run since: Jamie Sneddon - 41 games, 28th Aug 2021 to 9th Jul 2022. Club-record: Johnny Jackson - 313 games, 28th Aug 1926 to 25th Mar 1933.) If Dools could surpass Archie that would be great. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
