Partick Thistle remain bottom of the Championship table after they lost at home to Arbroath.

Bobby Linn broke in behind the Thistle defence and cut the ball back for Luke Donnelly to fire home Arbroath's opener.

Stuart Bannigan's penalty levelled matters, but the visitors won a penalty of their own moments later and Michael McKenna made no mistake from 12 yards.

Colin Hamilton sealed the victory following some neat work by Omar Kader.
