Largs boss Stuart Davidson has backed his side to bounce back against Petershill this weekend after another refereeing controversy at Barrfields.
The whistler was again centre of attention on Saturday as Calum Scott sent Largs keeper Sean Graham packing, and awarded a late spot-kick to give Meadow resulting in Thistle's first competitive defeat since 28 October.
Stuart said he was shellshocked that Largs were on the receiving end of a contentious refereeing decision for the second time in a row at Barrfields.
He fumed: "It looked as if it was going to be 0-0 and one of the Meadow forwards took a kick at Nicky Jamieson and then Sean was about to kick the ball out when he was blocked by the same player. Sean made contact as he tried to kick the ball out."

"There was very little in it, as the video highlights show, but the referee deemed it to be violent conduct, aggressive force and brutality. If that is violent conduct, you are going to see kids getting lifted at soft play areas.
"Sean has been great for us, and he and our defenders have been doing so well - it is the first league goal we have lost in nearly four league matches, so it is quite a sickener for us."
However, Stuart remained philosophical after the game, and said: "I told the players in the dressing room that although we are disappointed at what happened, it doesn't take away from the fact that we weren't good enough from an attacking point of view, as we hadn't scored. I am maybe being a touch harsh as the players did work hard, but I don't think we deserved to win the game on the balance of play."
Thistle now turn their attentions to the sizeable challenge of downing the league leaders at Barrfields on Saturday, 2pm kick-off.
Largs have a full complement of players to choose from apart from keeper Graham who is on holiday, and the club will decide whether to appeal his dismissal.
Recent signing Blair Cousar, who has featured in recent friendlies, will make his competitive debut in between the sticks after joining from East Ayrshire amateur outfit New Farm Loch amateurs in December.
Experienced forward Kevin Struthers didn't start against Meadow after picking up an ankle injury against Darvel, but he should be back in contention for this weekend.
"It was a missed opportunity for us on Saturday to move into the promotion places," said Stuart, "but I feel we can go and get the win against Petershill. In our earlier meeting, there wasn't a lot between the sides, and the early sending off of Creag Little had an effect. We gave away some sloppy goals but we are a much stronger defensive unit now.
"We need to have a go at them and ask a few questions of Petershill - we need a good result to get us back into the mix."
