Match Report

Linlithgow Thistle were blown away in the first half hour of this fixture.

A rejuvenated Uphall side were relentless in their attacking and Thistle’s resolve capitulated in a thirty minute barrage.

Only at 4-0 did Thistle show any signs of fight when Heeps finished a well worked move.

Thistle showed some spirit, coming close on several occasions.  However, two minutes to half-time, another Uphall brace further embarrassed the Linlithgow side and put the match beyond any doubt.

The second half was a different story, with Thistle enjoying much more of the possession and coming close on a number of chances.  Orr finished well from another good team worked move.

Unable to lessen the goal difference, Thistle had to settle for a humbling defeat and only thank the match secretary for scheduling another cup fixture during this very poor period for the Linlithgow team.
