Cairney puts Jags in control
A Paul Cairney hat-trick helped Partick to a 3-0 win over 10-man Dundee.
Dundee were denied early on after a rasping Stephen O'Donnell drive was palmed wide by Scott Fox.
Partick went ahead after 35 minutes, Cairney firing in after good work from Chris Erskine.
Cairney missed a glorious chance to score a second after Partick were awarded a penalty early in the second-half following a foul from Neil McGregor on Mark McGuigan, but Cairney's weak penalty was easily saved by Robert Douglas.
He made up for it late on, though, first clinically sweeping home a Sean Welsh cross, and then converting from the spot after Neil McGregor fouled Welsh.
McGregor was dismissed and Cairney hammered his penalty into the top-left corner.
