    <div>Thistle moved one step closer to the top of the table on Saturday when they defeated league leaders Dornoch City by 2 goals to nil at the Links. The match was won in comfortable fashion although the Jags left it late to finish the match off.</div><div><br /></div><div>Darran Goller gave Tain an early lead when he finished well to give Cameron Hook no chance in the Dornoch goal. It could have been 2-0 soon after were it not for Paul Cowie shooting over the crossbar. Thistle rarely looked flustered during a busy first half, but they couldn't extend the lead before the break.</div><div><br /></div><div>Shortly after the restart, Gordy Mackay was forced to withdraw due to injury and he was replaced by Dave Macgruer. The winner eventually came from Alan Duff after a great ball in field sent the defender clean through on goal and he beat Hook with a cool finish. Thistle had chances to add to the tally late on when Tony Farquhar headed over the bar and Goller hit the crossbar with a looped effort from an angle, but the score remained 2-0.<br /></div><div><br /></div><div><b>Team:</b> Allan, Durrand, Duff, D Mackay, A Christie, Cowie (Ross 78), G Mackay (Macgruer 50), C Mackintosh, Rostock, Goller (T Farquhar 85), D Christie</div>
