Thistle had lost the reverse fixture in Wishaw just a few weeks ago and so there was no chance that they were going to underestimate today’s opponents, despite their position near the foot of the table.
See the Player stats update:
Wednesday’s game at Maryhill has been postponed, Lowland League club BSC Glasgow who share their ground have priority and already had a fixture at Lochburn Park scheduled for that night.
Thistle had won the reverse fixture at Fullerton Park earlier in the season and looked to be well on the way to winning this one too until a great fightback by Vale saw the game end in a disappointing draw.
Some video highlights:
Thistle made the short trip to Viewpark for the second round of the last remaining cup competition that they had to play in, a dour struggle lacking in any real quality but the situation wasn’t helped any by the terrible playing surface.
It was a day that the result was always better than the performance, in a game that was spoiled by the high winds Thistle ran away with the second half and finished comfortable winners.
Video highlights, missed the Ashfield goal
Thistle and Carluke provided an all action game that had the fans of both sides entertained until the final whistle, but once again the referee was at the centre of the action as he sent off two from Carluke as well as the almost inevitable one from Larkhall.
Video now sorted
Today’s EuroEng Cup game at Thorniewood has been postponed due to the heavy overnight rain making the park waterlogged.
Next game is Carluke at home on Saturday.
Larkhall Thistle had a stand at today’s History of Larkhall exhibition, sales of Jags merchandise like the above went really well. The real winners on a bad day for the Jags were committe men Hugh Kerr and Levi McPhee who stayed behind to man the stall and answer a flood of questions throughout the day, at least they managed to avoid the shambles in Lanark.
Check back later for a few clips from the game.
After the high point of the season last time out when Thistle beat league leaders Bellshill convincingly, a game against second bottom Wishaw looked to be an easier task on paper but once again things didn’t entirely go to plan.
There are a couple of video clips of the game in the match report, fairly poor quality for speed of upload to Youtube but the match highlights will be available here soon, check back later if you want to see them.
