Goals from ex-Gers marksman Kenny Miller and Thomas Robson gave the Jags a two-goal cushion at the interval.
Salim Kouider-Aissa pulled one back for Queen’s Park, but the visitor’s held on for all three points.
Cammy Palmer helps Thistle top
Last season, 19-year-old Palmer captained Rangers Reserves to the league title.
Now, he’s looking to prove he can cut it in senior football. So far, so good for the young midfielder.
He got his first taste of action as a substitute at the weekend in a 1-0 over Airdrie. This time around though, he got the full 90 minutes in the centre of midfield.
The win sends Thistle top of Group F with a 100% record after two matches.
It’s a positive start to the season for the Glasgow club, but the real priority is performing in the Championship. They came close to relegation last season, but after a squad revamp are looking to make it back to the SPL.
If Palmer can play a big role in helping them do so, his stock back at Ibrox will continue to rise. It’s a great opportunity for the youngster and let’s hope as he gets more minutes under his belt, strong performances will follow.
