Half-Time Report: Partick Thistle lead comfortably against St Johnstone

Partick Thistle are beating St Johnstone 2-0 at half time in the Scottish Premiership.

Partick Thistle are beating St Johnstone 2-0 at half time in the Scottish Premiership after dominating the first half at Firhill Stadium.

The Glasgow club are looking to increase the gap between them and the relegation places with a win.

Partick opened the scoring within the first three minutes when Kris Doolan headed the ball into the net from Abdul Osman's cross.

Doolan should have added a second after eight minutes, rounding St Johnstone keeper Alan Mannus but shooting wide of the open goal.

Partick's lead was doubled a minute later when central defender Conrad Balatoni headed into the roof of the net.

With the Saints defence at sixes and sevens in the opening stages of the match, Ryan Stevenson's attempt to add a third was stopped by Mannus.

Partick continued to dominate and Stevenson smashed a volley against the left upright in the 40th minute.

Michael O'Halloran tried to pull a goal back for the Saints before half time, but his shot went over the bar.
