Partick Thistle: Tomas Cerny marks debut with great save

Partick Thistle goalkeeper Tomas Cerny marked an emotional return to Hamilton Academical with an early contender for save of the season.

A stunning stop from the former Accies player helped earn 10-man Jags a point in a 0-0 draw.

The 30-year-old Czech tipped over a shot from Ali Crawford that looked destined for the top corner.

"It was just a reaction," said Cerny when asked about the spectacular save after the match.

"I didn't expect the shot going that way, so I reacted to it a little late. But I got a top hand to it and scrambled it over the crossbar.

"Obviously the important part of it is that we kept a clean sheet and got a point in a difficult game."

The goalkeeper said it had been a day of reflection as he arrived with his Thistle team-mates to a stadium he knows well.

"Coming back to Hamilton after three years... I spent five seasons here and played 160 games for the club. I was a bit emotional coming here as the goalkeeper of an away team.

"But I saw the reception of both sets of fans was great, and I really appreciate that."
