00’Introduction

We're at Stair Park for tonight's Irn Bru Cup tie against League One side Stranraer. 

The Jags Colt side line up in the usual 4-2-3-1 formation but it will be Andrew McCarthy and James Penrice at centre half this evening. Antony Eadie and Callum Wilson will form the base of the Jags midfield with James Stokes, Mark Lamont and Neil McLaughlin supporting striker Kevin Nisbet. 

The Young Jags will take confidence from the tie against Queen's Park last season where the ten men Thistle side were only defeated by penalty kicks. 

A place in the third round awaits. Will it be Thistle or Stranraer who prevail?
