To take nothing from it is very disappointed. I thought we deserved at least a point
- Considine & Church headers give Dons victory
- Long-range Lawless strike had put Thistle ahead
- Champ: Dumbarton 3-1 Alloa, Raith 1-0 QoS
- Games in Leagues One and Two
- Scotland women 1-1 Spain women
Thank you for your company this evening and please join us again tomorrow for St Johnstone v Inverness CT.
Almost time for me to go. There will be more reaction to the match at Firhill on the BBC Sport website later.
It was very important that we got ourselves back in it as quickly as possible. We had to show quality, determination. Everybody played their part tonight
Thistle played the far better football tonight, Dons more possession but reliant on pumping it forward. No need. Compelling game though!
Tonight's results in the second tier mean fourth-placed Raith Rovers - 2-0 winners at home to Queen of the South - are now seven points clear of the Palmerston side.
At the bottom of the table, Dumbarton's 3-1 win over basement side Alloa Athletic increases the gap between the two sides to 15 points, with the Sons now four points above Livingston and having a game in hand over both of the bottom two.
Before Saturday, however, there are a couple of other Premiership fixtures to be played.
St Johnstone host Inverness Caledonian Thistle tomorrow evening with Saints currently sixth, three points ahead of the Highlanders.
And on Friday evening, bottom side Dundee United travel to take on Motherwell, who are seventh.
You can follow those matches on BBC Radio Scotland and the BBC Sport website.
Celtic are the next visitors to Firhill, taking on Partick Thistle on Saturday at lunchtime.
Later that day, Aberdeen host Kilmarnock.

The back 4 for Aberdeen couldn't tackle a fish supper! Ash Taylor is dreadful, Danny Ward carried them and now they are being found out. Opportunity to strengthen in January and were instead seriously weakened by Danny's departure! What an opportunity missed! No training facility, stadium moving further and further back - what are the ambitions? 2nd is only the 1st loser.

That late goal from Virginia Torrecilla secures a draw for Spain at the Falkirk Stadium, following Emma Mitchell's opener for the Scots.
