The Little Report Thistle seemed content to play a holding midfield game and were seldom seen as an attacking force. St Johnstone took the lead (11) through a magnificent header by Connolly who was a constant threat. They came close to a second goal with a header from a free-kick by Lambie (yes, it is he). When Thistle did venture forward they found St Johnstone's off-side trap a problem. Glavin found himself in the clear just on half-time but shot straight at the keeper. In the second half he was unlucky to see a 25-yard drive bounce back off the crossbar. Two minutes later, from the same distance, ex-JAG Whitelaw gave St Johnstone a 2-goal cushion. A disappointing performance. Perhaps their 5-2-3 formation was too defensively minded but it left Thistle with it all to do in the second leg.
