00’Introduction

It's a nice sunny afternoon here at Central Park as Thistle look to progress to the third round of the Youth Cup.

Cowdenbeath are the side who stand in the way of Scott MacKenzie's side and MacKenzie has selected the same starting eleven who defeated Heriot Watt University 6-0 in the first round.

Confidence will be high in the camp with Thistle currently sitting third in the Development League table.
