And Partick Thistle will feel like they were robbed at Firhill last night as Hearts snatched a point to deny them their second SPFL Premiership win in a row.
The Jags looked set to be heading for a deserved victory when Aaron Muirhead fired them ahead from the spot with just six minutes remaining but a late leveller from Jamie Walker earned the Jambos a share of the spoils from an enthralling encounter.
With four points from their opening two fixtures against Dundee United and Ross County, Thistle went into their second Friday night fixture of the campaign with the chance to move top of the table.
Perhaps more crucially, they had the opportunity to put even more breathing space between themselves and their visitors and open up a 19-point cushion to the 12th-placed Jambos.
Alan Archibald has encouraged his side to play with the same freedom and verve that set them apart in the First Division last season now that they are mixing it with Scotland's top teams.
For the third match in a row, they stroked the ball about with a crispness and precision and Hearts couldn't cope for large swathes of the game.
The waves of attacks in the first half were relentless from the Premiership newcomers as they forced Gary Locke's side on to the back foot.
They almost had the breakthrough after eight minutes but Kris Doolan, who opened his top flight account in the win over County last weekend, was denied his second goal of the campaign by the offside flag after he reacted quickly to prod home at the back post.
Almost every chance Thistle created fell to their No. 9 but Jamie MacDonald's net didn't bulge.
Just after the half hour mark, Thistle saw appeals for a penalty waved away by referee Bobby Madden when Stephen O'Donnell's cross struck Danny Wilson before Brad McKay scythed down Steven Lawless.
By the time the opening period had come to a close, Doolan had again come close from distance and captain Sean Welsh saw a rasping effort rise narrowly over the Jambos bar.
It was the skipper's last action of the night, with him replaced at the break by Kallum Higginbotham.
The momentum soon swung in Hearts' favour, however, the Jambos seeing more of the ball, Danny Wilson going close with a couple of headers.
Chances were not coming as regularly they did in the first half for Thistle but they still did enough to keep MacDonald alert, the keeper making a near-post save from a Craigen header and seeing a drive from Gary Fraser whistle over before blocking a John Baird effort.
The shot-stopper pulled off a terrific save to deny Lawless just moments later but was helpless to prevent Thistle finally taking the lead, Muirhead blasting home from the spot with just six minutes remaining after Walker fouled Baird.
Thistle's lead was not to last, however, with the Jambos youngster making amends almost immediately, firing beyond Jags keeper Scott Fox from the edge of the area to send the huge travelling support into raptures and bring the curtain down on another Friday night Firhill thriller.
