Partick Thistle foiled but still set on catching Hearts

Partick Thistle failed to close the gap on Hearts on Saturday but that does not mean they have ditched their ambitions.

Europe looks too far away for Hearts

Hearts had to battle back twice in this one but, ultimately forced to make do with a share of the points, they still could not salvage their dwindling hopes of qualifying for Europe. That task now looks beyond them, with the games against the teams above them, three of them away from home, likely to pose an even bigger issue than a Partick Thistle side reduced to ten men.
