Stephen O’Donnell fired the opening goal of Partick Thistle’s 3-0 win at Cowdenbeath as the Jags leapfrogged Morton at the top of the First Division.
The former Celtic defender has been in outstanding form this season as Thistle bid to return to the SPL.
At one stage Morton were six points clear but after winning their games in hand Thistle have gone a point clear with a game in hand. Morton visit Firhill on April 10.
After last night’s win new Thistle boss Alan Archibald said: “We’re delighted to be back at the top of the table. We’ve fought long and hard to get there.
“We want to stay there now, so it’s up to us to keep on winning games. There’s a pressure on both teams to win every game now, but it’s definitely better to be at the top.
“A game in hand is only a game in hand if you win it, if not it means nothing. So we’re delighted to come here and get the points.”
On Saturday Thistle return to Cowdenbeath followed by a third visit to Fife in a week to play Raith Rovers on Tuesdays.
Elsewhere in the First Division Greig Spence scored for Raith Rovers as they went into a 2-0 lead away to Dumbarton but the home side stormed back to win 4-2.
In the other First Division match less than 3,000 fans turned up to watch Dunfermline lose 2-0 to local rivals Falkirk with an air of depression settled over East End Park.
Wide scale redundancies are expected today as administrators PKF attempt to cut costs in order to see the club through until the end of the season.
