Partick Away Milestones

In April a Stevie Crawford strike just before half time was enough to take the points back to Fife.   Prior to that the last Pars league win there was five games back on the opening day of the 1988-89 season.  Dunfermline were also knocked out of the 2007-08 Scottish Cup by Thistle at the end of January.
