Jim McIntyre, the Dunfermline manager, responds by making a double substitution on the hour mark. It's another five minutes before Scott Fox, the Partick keeper, has to make the first save of the second half. With twenty minutes left a brilliant defensive header by Partick's Boyle prevents Willis from knocking it in at the back post. At the other end of the park, a Buchanan cross is headed goal-wards by Rowson. The ball bounces in front of the Chris Smith in goal and he only grabs it at the second attempt.
Merry Christmas to y'all, see you in 2011. x
