Kris Doolan bagged a brace as Partick beat Falkirk 3-1 at the Firhill Stadium.
The hosts got off to a flying start when Patrick Lawless produced a neat finish inside the area after good work by Sean Welsh in the fourth minute.
And Doolan doubled the advantage three minutes later when Paul Paton headed the ball across goal for the striker to tap home.
The visitors pulled a goal back eight minutes after the restart with a superb volley from Lyle Taylor on the edge of the area.
But Doolan restored the two-goal cushion and netted his second of the game when he rose highest to head home Welsh's cross in the 57th minute.
Blair Aston came close to pulling a goal back in the closing stages but Scott Fox produced a fine save to deny him.
