PARTICK defender Marc Twaddle won a car in the half-time draw - but it was the Jags who won a watch with a dramatic injury-time penalty.
Twaddle's name was picked out of the hat in the club's centenary prize fund draw, much to the embarrassment of the announcer who assured punters it wasn't a fix.
The player was bemused by the whole event but could not hide his joy at Thistle's dramatic winner.
He said: "I don't know how often you get a win bonus and a car. It was a nice surprise but I'm delighted with the win first and foremost.
"Winning the car as well is surreal - it's a wee Citroen C1.
"I didn't even know I was in the draw but someone told me at half-time.
"I forgot all about it until after the game when all the boys were talking about it.
"I had a feeling something was coming towards the end of the match. I thought we deserved to win and it was a great penalty from Liam Buchanan.
"There was lot of pressure on him takinag it, having been out for four or five months.
"This team's got a great spirit and we play until the final whistle. I know St Johnstone won but we just concentrated on what we did.
"All we can do is win our own games and if we win the last two, you never know what could happen." With the game into the third minute of stoppage time and their title hopes all but gone, Thistle were awarded a penalty when Scott Chaplain's shot cannoned off Chris Malone's hand.
Ref Scott MacDonald glanced at his assistant before pointing to the spot and sub Liam Buchanan sent Roddy MacKenzie the wrong way.
It was harsh on Livingston, who had created the better chances and been kept at bay by some inspired goalkeeping from Jonny Tuffey.
On the half-hour mark Twaddle spurned a great chance to break the deadlock when skipper Alan Archibald's free-kick found him unmarked in the six-yard box.
But the defender showed you can't be lucky all the time, as his free header flew wide.
After a poor first period, Twaddle was fired up as Thistle came out in the second half with all guns blazing.
But the onslaught was short-lived and the game settled back into a familiar pattern.
Tuffey made two good saves from McDonald and Griffiths.
Then came the late penalty.
Jags gaffer Ian McCall saluted his side, saying: "They might not be the best team in the world but they never, ever give up and they got the rewards at the end.
"We've taken it to the second last game of the season and I'm
absolutely thrilled by that."
Livingston boss Paul Hegarty said: "It's a cruel game.
"The boys worked so hard, and got nothing out the game so they're understandably upset."
