Thistle face a tough away tie in the quarter final today against a strong Motherwell side. Like Thistle, they’ve never won the Cup and after disposing of Ayr United following two replays, will be keen to make the last four. Our 4-0 win in September at Fir Park isn’t much of a guide as Well now sit alongside us in the top half of the league.
Motherwell 2-2 Partick Thistle Att: 20,000
It’s yet another Cup replay for Thistle after goals from Robert McFarlane and Willie Salisbury were cancelled out by a brace from Hughie Ferguson for Motherwell in front of 20,000 fans. Ferguson put Well ahead in 7 minutes before MacFarlane equalised with a tap in. Thistle were level for less than a minute when Ferguson put Well ahead again. In the second half, the home side looked most likely to progress but a low drive from Salisbury gave Thistle another chance on Tuesday,
