Thistle overcame a dogged and determined Dalmore side in this Cairns Cup match, who sought vengeance for the 5-0 league thrashing in Linlithgow, only a couple of weeks ago.

The visitors started well, with Dylan Robb instinctively scoring in the first ten minutes, following good interplay.  However, Dalmore eventually equalised and took the lead, despite spells of Thistle dominance.

With only minutes of the tie remaining, Captain Russell launched himself forward and received his just rewards with a clinical strike that took the tie into extra time.

A clever freekick at the death of the match saw O’Brien stepover the ball, with Bauros smashing it into the net, winning the Linlithgow men a Quarter Final fixture against Danderhall.
