Gow win takes promotion out of Thistle’s hands

Lesmahagow beat Benburb 4-1 tonight to set up a final day in the league that promises to be tension packed and nail-biting to say the least. Thistle take on Port Glasgow at home on Saturday, while at the same time phones will be pointed to Craighead to see how the Gow are doing in their final game at home to Dunipace.

Unfortunately the situation is now out of the Jags hands, if Lesmahagow win they go up – it is now as simple as that. If they don’t win and Thistle do win then the Jags are promoted. If neither team wins the league’s form team Shettleston go up thanks to their late surge which has seen them shoot up the standings to second place.

  1. Lesmahagow have done well to win these games so we have to win our game and see what happens elsewhere. I most certainly prefer this end of season drame compared to last year. Football is a funny game and strange things happen who would have thought our opponents would be same as 12 months ago. We have been in this situation before when we won the old 1st div. championship in 1999-2000 with us and GLENCAIRN going into the last game in a much similar situation the Glens lost 4 3 to vale of clyde and we beat the ants 1 0 in a game they had to win to stay up. It certainly adds a bit of excitement to the last game of the season.
