03 May 2024

Dundee United rounded off their cinch Championship-winning campaign with a 4-1 victory over Patrick Thistle at Tannadice Park.

Jim Goodwin’s Terrors, who had clinched promotion as champions with a 0-0 draw at Airdrieonians last Friday, fell behind via an early Ben Stanway finish before Craig Sibbald equalised just prior to the interval.

Thistle goalkeeper Ross Stewart then saved a 57th-minute Louis Moult penalty only to be beaten by Kai Fotheringham two minutes later.

Tony Watt added a third 10 minutes on from that and Moult subsequently notched the fourth with seven minutes of normal time to go, this time sending a spot-kick past Stewart and in.

Kris Doolan’s Thistle finish third and will face Airdrieonians in the play-offs, with the winner to play a semi-final against Raith Rovers.
