Clydebank 1 Largs Thistle 2

A stunning winning goal from inside the semi-circle by Scott Adam was just enough for Thistle to edge past the Bankies in an exciting contest.

Take nothing away from Stuart Davidson's troops who took full points after defending a second half onslaught to move up to seventh position in the Premier Division.

With two intense training sessions behind them from midweek, Thistle dominated the early stages, and caught Clydebank on the backfoot early doors.

Thistle's early pressure paid off and it was Ben Black who raced down the left wing to provide the onrushing Scott Adam at the near post to slot home from close range to silence the big Clydebank support after only five minutes play.

Adam spotted the Clydebank keeper Waters well off his line on 31 minutes.

From the edge of the centre circle, Thistle's top scorer added to his tally with one of the most spectacular goals of his career and he hit a fast paced chip which had the keeper backtracking.

Waters leapt backwards to try and keep the ball from looping under the bar but to the astonishment of the Holm Park crowd Thistle were 2-0 up and looking good.

Bankies won a free kick on 43 minutes and Munro's swerving free kick was parried by Ross Lundy in the Largs goal as former Largs striker Nicky Little chased to the byeline to ping over a quick low cross which was converted by Shelvey from close range.

After some of the recent goalfests of recent weeks, Thistle deserve great credit at keeping Clydebank at bay in the second half and refused to buckle.

Thistle fans lauded the praises of the tenacious young side who showed once more on Saturday that they are very capable of upsetting the odds.

With aeroplanes flying regularly overhead into Glasgow Airport, Largs piloted by Stuart Davidson are now taking flight in the Premiership after a turbulent close season of changes.
