Subject to a 9am pitch inspection we travel to Firhill Stadium for our Scottish Cup Second Round tie.

If the game goes ahead it will be our first match of 2021 after last week’s home game with Edinburgh City was postponed. It was a similar story for our hosts with their home game with Clyde also failing an inspection.

After relegation last season, Thistle find themselves in fifth place in League One with 15 points from their opening ten games, six behind leaders Falkirk who have played a game more.

Although the first season the clubs met was 1924/25 it wasn’t until 1937/38 that we met in the Scottish Cup with the Jags winning 1-0 at Firhill. The following season we were paired again and after 3-3 draw at Central Park we won the replay 2-1.

It was to be 39 years before the next cup meeting when we drew 1-1 at Firhill in February 1978 just 24 hours after playing a league game at Stenhousemuir! Premier Division Thistle had equalised deep into injury time and ran out 1-0 in the replay which had been postponed multiple times due to snow during the month.

In January 1993, as we struggled at the foot of the First Division, we famously beat the top flight jags 1-0 at Firhill. Six years later we were at Firhill once again as Thistle had slipped into the Second Division and ran out 5-2 winners.

A Foot In Both Camps

Keeper Jamie Sneddon is Partick’s third longest serving player after signing from us in the summer of 2017. Jamie played in 35 (+1 sub) games for us with the last being in the play off game with East Kilbride when he saved a penalty in the shoot out to help preserve our SPFL status.

Defender Darren Brownlie spent seasons 2013/14 & 2014/15 with us in the Championship after signing from the Jags initially on loan. He played in 35 (+7 sub) games for us scoring once. He then moved to QOS before returning to Thistle in the summer.

In the event of a postponement the match will take place on Tuesday 12th January with a 7.45pm kick off.

Previewer: Andrew Mullen.
