Robby McCrorie backed up last weekend’s Man of the Match display against Dundee, by helping his side to a win over Partick Thistle at Firhill on Saturday afternoon.

It was newly appointed Jags manager and former Rangers midfielder Ian McCall’s first home match in charge and there would have been plenty of optimism pre-match that the hosts would be able to kick on from last week’s first league win of the season.

Yet, it was Queens who emerged with the spoils courtesy of a goal from defender Darren Brownlie, after 60 minutes.

Thistle certainly had a go at getting something from the game, registering 17 shots, but only four were on target. McCrorie was equal to them all, keeping out Joe Cardle, former Ibrox marksman Kenny Miller and two late efforts from Reece Cole [BBC Sport].

It was a third clean sheet from 12 appearances for McCrorie [Soccerbase], who is seen as a potential long-term replacement for Allan McGregor.

Fellow Rangers loanee Cammy Palmer, who scored his first professional goal for the Jags last weekend, was named in starting line-up by McCall but substituted shortly after QoS took the lead.

It’s another good result for McCrorie, though, who is sure to be impressing the coaching staff back at Ibrox.
