The Little Report Thistle's lead would have been unassailable had they not become complacent after scoring three in the first half” (GH). It was an exciting game. Alloa produced a high standard of football and made a fight of it after the disappointments of the first twenty minutes. Pace down the wings was the foundation of the win and Thistle took the lead (8) when Coulston scored with a flying header from a McQuade cross. An almost identical goal at the other end (an own goal by Reid) put Alloa on level terms two minutes later. A slick move involving a number of players ended with a McQuade goal to give Thistle the lead. A few minutes later Rae (A) touched a free-kick to Smith who got Thistle's third with a shot from 35 yards (20). Alloa fought back and came close twice. Rough had to be at his best on both occasions. His opposite number was also in fine form and he had a couple of excellent saves to deny Bone and Lawrie before saving a Bone penalty. Bone did however get on the score sheet when he finished of a good move and pass from McQuade (78).
