Thistle out of League Cup

PARTICK Thistle crashed out of the Scottish Communities League Cup after they were beaten in extra time 1-0 by Hamilton Academicals.

Despite starting better and played a much more attacking game than Accies, The Jags suffered their first loss of the season as Ali Crawford scored in stoppage time after hitting a long range shot that dipped over Scott Fox’s head and into his net.

But it could have all been so very if Jackie McNamara’s side had converted one of the host of chances they had in the first half.

As it was Hamilton Accies goalie Kevin Cuthberton was kept busy but managed to handle everthing a swashbuckling Thistle had to throw at him.

This Saturday Thistle welcome The Accies to Firhill for a league game and will be looking for revenge. Kick off is 3pm.
