A drab end of season affair full of “feckless footering”. Thistle were the better team but the forwards were shot-shy. McCredie scored with a pen for hand-ball (13) but Henderson was too slow getting down to a fast low shot (79).

CLG 4/5/1951. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.

A first-half hat-trick by Miller (23, 25 and 45 when he finished off the keeper's fumble) put Thistle in a strong position against Kilmarnock who seldom threatened. Report only to half-time.
