Terrible result today for The Gow. Can’t believe how we lost 3.2 at Larkhall. Fair play to Jack Currie for taking his 3 goals well.

Ahh well that’s fitba for ye.

At what point did the Larkhall keeper see a red card?

Great win for Thistle today, fantastic team spirit shown by all the lads to come fom behind and win with 10 men.

If they can keep that kind of level up they won't be far away.

Comfortable win for Lanark today. Shug Kerr scored 4 first half goals. Dropped off a bit second half. Maryhill captain scored a screamer before we scored a twice taken penalty to finish it off at 1-5.

Maryhill defence/keeper had some howlers today.

 

Well done to Lanark, but Kerr will rarely get such gift wrapped opportunities. The third, in particular, should get an award for high comedy content!

If he hadn't scored the keeper would have been shown a red for hand ball outside the area.

Lanark appear to have made a good signing in the shape of John Boal from Shotts.  made an impressive debut yesterday.

We needed strengthening at left back following long term injuries to Craig Stark and Sam Johnstone.

Ah, good point. I hadn't thought of that, although I have seen keepers only get a yellow for a similar offence. Of course, if you think of it as denying a goal scoring opportunity, which it would have been, then def a red!

But, let's face it, missing it was never really on. I am 68, and have a bad back, but pretty confident I would have scored in that situation.

Ah but, would you have put the fear of death in the keeper and his defensive colleagues as Shug did to lead to the aforementioned gaffe?

Yes, probably. The way the Maryhill defence has been playing recently, it's not too difficult!

Seriously etc, I have seen Lanark a few times recently, and have been impressed. I have followed the fortunes of Maryhill for many years, but now live four miles from Lanark, so they are my local team!

Another disappointing defeat for The Port tonight. Never really got going and Perthshire deserved the 3 points.

Lanark 0 v Larkhall Thistle 3

No doubt who the man of the match was last night. Larkhall keeper, who I believe is not even first choice, had 8 excellent saves last night plus had one saved off the line.  We missed a pile of chances whilst Larkhall took advantage of our defensive sloppiness in the first half to go 2 up.  Well done to them.

Pretty fair assessment it was definitely a good defensive display in the second half by Larkhall and in particular the goalkeeper however felt had the right choices been made in the final third by larkhall in the first half the game would have been over as a contest by half time.

If it’s the big boy that came on against us on Saturday, why is he not first keeper? He must have had 5 great saves against us and if Jack Currie hadn’t scored 3, that boy would definitely have been my man of the match.

Great 3 points last night, 1st half we played some great stuff, 2nd have was pretty close, both teams having chances, got to say some very strange decisions from the ref for both teams.
