Thistle finally managed to shake the monkey of its back with a good 3-3 draw against one of the leagues better teams, North End United. Thistle were brave being 2-0 down and dug deep to get even.
Vince Sutherland playing for United managed to score the first goal with a good header. Not to be outdone, Hugh Scott (Thistle) was playing his usual hard hitting game and managed to send a great ball to Phil Cunningham, who scored.
Thistle went to sleep half way through the first half and it was not until Harry McCulloch's header hit the uprights that they realised they were in the game.
Tony Vanderel punished a defensive mistake from Thistle and found Vare who shot a beaut goal.
After half-time Thistle looked a bit more energetic and Chris Mathieson showed his skill by going on a long run and passed to Peter Ottley who scored.
A good period of play from Thistle saw John Kolk give his team a good attacking position and Ottley showed great pace and scored from a Keith Roach pass.
