Thistle brought the curtain down on their league campaign with a home game against Thorniewood. With both teams safe from relegation and neither able to get promoted there was only pride to play for but they both put in plenty of effort in a decent last game.
Thistle made the short trip across the Clyde to play high-flying neighbours Wishaw. In a week of remarkable turnarounds in the big football, Wishaw followed in the steps of Rangers Liverpool and Germany as they blew a two goal lead.
Thistle hosted neighbours Lesmahagow in this tough looking league match. As preparation for next week’s Scottish Cup second round tie, the derby promised to be as good a test as any the Jags could have had.
Thistle’s last game of the 2014 – 2015 season was a crucial game for the Bens, only a win would save them from relegation to the Central Second Division. Thistle were safe and had nothing really to play for other than pride.
As Benburb were still awaiting completion of their new ground this game was played at Lochburn Park the home of Maryhill Juniors.
Despite assuring themselves of staying in the First Division with the win over St Anthony’s in midweek, Thistle didn’t down tools and played their part in what was one of the highest scoring games of the whole league season. A nightmare of a game for defensive purists but it kept the majority of the crowd entertained until the final whistle.
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.
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.
