Forfar Athletic 0-2 Partick Thistle
First-half goals by Chris Erskine and Steven Lawless gave Partick Thistle victory against Forfar Athletic in the Scottish Communities League Cup.
Erskine latched on to Stuart Bannigan's pass to fire home on 18 minutes.
And a low drive by Lawless doubled the lead for the visitors.
Hugh Murray was sent off for a professional foul on Gavin Swankie but the Forfar man blazed the resulting penalty over.
And the hosts could not overturn their deficit in the second half.
