Queen's Park secured a vital three points in the Glasgow Cup with a gritty team performance against an unlucky Partick side. It was a miserable evening at Lochinch with both teams desperate to bounce back from their setbacks in the last round against the old firm, Queen’s Park being thumped 8-0 at the hands of Rangers and Partick being defeated 4-3 in a tight affair at Lennoxtown against Celtic.
The game began at a very high tempo with slick passing from both teams. However, there was no real end product for either team. The only real chances fell to Queens Park defender Nicholas McAllister who headed wide from a corner before Partick’s Aidan Fitzpatrick had his effort saved at the front post by Queen’s Park stopper Luke Paul, after showing good skill to get by his marker on the left hand side.
It became a scrappy affair with both teams not really being able to get any decent spells of possession, both defences holding firm when any attacks came their way. However, one minute from the break, Ian last was presented with the best chance of the match to put Partick ahead. Jordan Kemoe with a lovely through ball to Last who could only guide it off the post.
