Largs boss Stuart Davidson has praised his players for another top display at Barrfields, and is hoping that the club can end the season on a high.
Thistle face the might of Rob Roy in the New Coins Holdings West of Scotland Cup third round on Saturday, 2pm kick-off at home (If it a draw at full-time, the game will go to penalties).
And Stuart believes Largs can make it into the quarter finals if they can keep showing the same level of commitment and desire. The winners play Cumnock or Blantyre Vics away.
Stuart said: “The cup is a good distraction from the bottom of the league, and now we just want to get into the next round of the cup.”
Looking back on Thistle’s 4-1 win over Glenafton, Stuart said: “ I thought we started the game really well - you can tell sometimes how we start a game how it is going to go and I thought we were on course. Don’t be kidded, Glenafton are a right good side, and have only been beaten once in the league, and won 10, but I could tell from the way we started the game, we were going to give them a good challenge. They might say the red card took something away from the game, but it took nothing away from our display, and I thought it was a top performance.”
“It was a great finish from Kevin Struthers, he just squared the defender up, and got an extra half yard, and it was a great finish. It was a case of the right place at the right time for ‘Slick’ (James Marks), and he took his goals brilliantly, and is always dangerous on the box. Matt Bennett put in a good finish, and often makes those runs when he plays across the defence.
“Their goal and chances in the second half was down to our complacency. We were doing things we weren’t doing in the first half, taking extra touches, letting the ball get into congested areas. Once we got over a bad wee spell, we got back on track we thoroughly deserved a good win. 
“We have had some great performances, if you think back to the turn of the year, we have beaten Kilbirnie, Beith, and Kilwinning, and if you look at the games we have lost, it has only been by one goal against Auchinleck Talbot, Rob Roy, and Beith - there has been good performances this year but sometimes it is the wee breaks we have not been getting which you obviously need to earn, a wee error here and there has maybe cost us, and it is a very fine line in this league.”
In terms of Thistle’s survival chances, Stuart said that the club would remained focused for the last two league games: “It is a big ask when you look at the teams we have still got to play - Beith (A) and Auchinleck (H) - but you just never know. Just look at Saturday. people expected us to be well beaten by Glenafton and we won, so you just never know.”
