The Scottish Premiership relegation drama looks set to continue for Partick Thistle and St Mirren after they fought out an entertaining 1-1 draw at Firhill.

Thistle deservedly took the lead in the 25th minute when Kris Doolan headed home from a tight angle after some great technique from Kallum Higginbotham out wide.

But the creator allowed St Mirren back in the game on the stroke of half-time when he barged Jason Naismith in the back as he tried to get back goal-side, and Kenny McLean converted from the penalty spot.

Thistle had played some flowing football up to that point but the second half started scrappily. However, both sides then threw everything at getting a winner in a thrilling final quarter and both McLean and Thistle substitute Lyle Taylor hit the frame of the goal.

Saints and Thistle edged four and three points ahead of the dreaded second-bottom spot respectively but Ross County will drag them right back into the battle to avoid the play-off if they beat Kilmarnock on Saturday.
