Match Report

The Thistle travelled to Cumbernauld to face Stirling & District First Division side, Drumpellier in the East of Scotland Cup, 2nd Round.

The first half saw the visitors press and come close on numerous occasions.  Despite sustained pressure it was tied at 0-0 at the half time whistle.

Into the second half, Thistle again dominated.  McLean worked well to achieve a deserved penalty and then converted after dusting himself down.  Swords added a second shortly thereafter with a fine finish, before Lacki finished a well worked move that started in Thistle’s own half.

The shell-shocked hosts could not raise their game and thereafter found themsleves 5-0 down after a cheeky flick by Orr and a left footed volley from Thomson.
