Partick Thistle ended a run of six matches without a victory by beating Scottish Premiership rivals Dundee United at Tannadice.
Stephen O'Donnell's drive gave Thistle the lead.
And an own goal by Jaroslaw Fojut stretched their advantage before the half-time interval.
United could not claw their way back into the match and their winless run is extended to four matches, further denting their European hopes.
Saturday's victory ensures the men from Maryhill now have a seven point cushion over the three sides below them in the Premiership table.
