Motherwell made it a record-equalling night as they claimed a win and a 19th clean sheet of the season in a 1-0 win at Partick Thistle.
Ryan Bowman’s headed goal in the second half also made him the Steelmen’s top scorer in the 2017/18 season.
The first half passed relatively without incident, but Trevor Carson was called into action on a number of occasions.
With just eight minutes gone, the Northern Ireland international had to be alert to keep out Ryan Edwards’ header from Kris Doolan’s cross.
Just after the half hour mark, Carson was called upon again. Woods’ effort from outside the area was beaten away by the goalkeeper, with Charles Dunne then on hand to clear before Doolan could pounce.
The half time introduction of Gael Bigirimana and a change in shape sparked the visitors into life.
David Turnbull, making his first start, tied Edwards in knots down the right side of the area to create a chance for Chris Cadden, but his shot was blocked at source.
The youngster then turned creator. Motherwell won a free kick on the right side of the area, which Turnbull stepped up to take.
His perfectly floated delivery sailed towards a number of players in black, but it was Bowman who won the header to open the scoring.
The Steelmen immediately went on the hunt for a second. Curtis Main was next to try his luck, with his delicate chip from just outside the area just dipping over the bar.
With Cédric Kipré off the pitch receiving treatment, Thistle looked to capitalise. Christie Elliott was next to try his luck, with his long-distance effort swerving in the air and Carson coping well to beat it away.
Both sides continued to push forward. Thistle continued to find the odd pocket of space for shots from distance, however, which continued to cause concern.
The hosts then had a glorious chance with 10 to go. Kipré’s slip allowed Miles Storey to drive at goal down the left unmarked. With room to shoot, he aimed with a ferocious effort towards the far post but it fizzed wide.
With five minutes added on, Thistle pushed desperately to get at least a point to help them in their fight against the drop.
Two minutes in, they had their chance. Spittal found himself room with a header 12 yards from goal but he could only place it straight at a grateful Carson.
