Result: Anderson on target again as Jags secure Scottish Cup progress

The St Johnstone defender made the breakthrough after an hour's play.

Steven Anderson's second goal in two games since joining Partick Thistle on loan guided the Jags to a 1-0 William Hill Scottish Cup fifth-round win at East Fife.

The St Johnstone defender got on the end of a Craig Slater corner to settle this clash after also finding the target in the 2-1 win at Inverness last weekend.

Aidan Fitzpatrick dragged an early shot wide before Christie Elliott headed a Slater free-kick narrowly over as Thistle made a bright start.

Fitzpatrick was proving to be a thorn in the side of East Fife and he headed another chance wide from Miles Storey's cross midway through the first half.

The 17-year-old then turned his man well in the box but could only shoot tamely at Brett Long.

East Fife were awarded an indirect free-kick five yards out five minutes before the break when Conor Hazard caught his clearance after it was blown back by the wind but the free-kick from Scott Linton was deflected behind for a corner.

And the goal that the Jags had been threatening came after 60 minutes when Anderson headed home Slater's corner at the back post.

Ross Davidson then forced a save from Hazard when Linton's long throw found its way to him but the visitors held out for victory.
