Dundee grabbed a dramatic equaliser six minutes from time to peg back Partick Thistle at Dens Park.
The Dark Blues had been hoping to do much better in front of their own fans after going down to Kilmarnock a fortnight earlier.
There wasn’t much home improvement on show as they lost a fifth-minute headed goal that was scored by an unmarked Liam Lindsay.
However, substitute Kane Hemmings collected a pass from Paul McGowan inside the box on 84 minutes then drilled a low shot under the body of Jags keeper Paul Gallacher to earn a draw.
The home team had come close to opening the scoring after just three minutes when a great run from Rhys Healey ended with his shot from just outside the box being superbly saved by Gallacher.
However, the visitors were ahead just two minutes later.
A corner was fired over from the right by Stuart Bannigan and Lindsay leapt to nod into the net at the near post.
A great strike on 12 minutes from Rory Loy forced Gallacher to make another fine stop then the Thistle goalie was his team’s saviour again when he blocked a drive from inside the box from Paul McGowan on 25 minutes, allowing the visitors to hit back with a break that was only halted when Kris Doolan was flagged offside.
There was an injury blow for Dundee on the half-hour mark when Healey was carried off injured to be replaced by Hemmings.
Doolan came close to putting Partick two up when he sent an acrobatic, overhead kick just wide of Scott Bain’s right-hand post then the Thistle frontman missed a great chance when he just couldn’t get the ball from out under his feet when just yards from goal.
On 52 minutes, McGowan connected with a Hemmings cross but once again Gallacher was there to save for the Jags then he was at it again four minutes later when he dived to keep out a shot from Greg Stewart.
Dens boss Paul Hartley brought on Riccardo Calder for Nicky Low on 63 minutes in a bid to stretch the Jags.
However, it was the visitors who almost added to their tally on 75 minutes when Bain pushed a vicious strike from sub Gary Fraser over the bar then Lindsay headed the resultant corner inches wide.
With just six minutes left, though, an improved second-half display from the hosts was rewarded when Hemmings found the back of the net.
It was end-to-end stuff after that but even four additional minutes couldn’t produce a winner.
