  • Thistle slow to start in Brora runout

    A solid second half performance from the Jags saw off Brora Wanderers in a friendly last night as Thistle sat out of this week's Ross-shire Welfare fixtures. Goals from Liam Rostock, Daniel Christie and Robbie Ross gave them a 4-0 win after a dire first half.<br /><br />It was thanks to goalkeeper Steven Wemyss in the early stages that Brora did not take the lead, as he kept the Wanderers out on a number of occasions; Thistle's three man defence caught several times by the pace and trickery of the visitors.<br /><br />Daniel Christie and Liam Rostock both tested David Crombie at the other end however, but the Brora stopper was more than upto the challenge, giving a great showing between the sticks.<br /><br />A half time roasting from gaffer Arron Christie saw Thistle improve in the second half, and before long they found the net through Daniel Christie. A Liam Rostock brace followed with two goals in three minutes and just moments after, Robbie Ross capitalized on a mistake to dribble past Crombie and tap the ball home.<br /><br />Substitues Colin Burry and Craig Nimmons were introduced late on in their first appearances of the season, but there were to be no more goals as Thistle finished as 4-0 winners.<br /><br /><b>Team:</b><br />Wemyss, Farquhar, Graham, Munro, Cowie, D Christie (C Nimmons), Matheson, Durrand, Ross, Rostock (Burry), Ripley (A Christie)<br /><br /><b>Goals:</b><br />D Christie 60, Rostock 75, 77, Ross 78
