Largs Thistle 1 St Roch's 1
Thistle had a first half fright against St Roch's after the First Division side threatened to upset the Premier high-flyers in a feisty fifth round Macron Scottish Cup tie at Barrfields.
The fact that it was an own goal that got Largs out of jail shows that Largs will have to really up their game for the replay.
It was very much a game of two halves though and Thistle, even when they were harshly reduced to ten man following the dismissal of Mark Millar, looked by far the superior side in the second half.
Largs will have to leave nothing to chance in Glasgow next week, and will be disappointed that they didn't take advantage of a home tie in the Scottish.
Of course it didn't do any harm to Thistle in 1993-4 when they won the cup on the road, and if Largs can carry on where they left off on Saturday, they should be able to finish the job.
But there are no guarantees, and St Roch's showed on Saturday that they have no fears, and a physically robust outfit who are very capable, with strong crowd backing who are certain to provide a partisan atmosphere in their own park.
Largs, who were 1/4 favourites, got off to a uncharacteristically nervy start, with two new starts in the defence and goalkeeping positions as Ryan Begley signed from Irvine Meadow replaced Nicky Jamieson in defence, and new goalie Jamie McGowan made their debuts.
Last year's top scorer Scott Adam was also restored to attack as Kevin Struthers made way.
But St Roch's took the game to Largs from the first whistle and a pass back to McGowan caused panic stations as his low effort was nearly capitalised upon by St Roch's early doors but thankfully it was cleared.
On 11 minutes, Martin ran through unchallenged from midfield and spied McGowan off his line and let rip from fully 30 yards as he sent a missile into the top left hand corner of the net which was unstoppable. 1-0 to the underdogs.
Ben Black, who was Thistle's best player on the day, raced down the left wing and teed up Faulds who released Graham Muir but his sclaffed effort careered past the right post.
St Roch's Kieran Martin launched another long ranger which just sailed over the bar as the visitors were gaining confidence looking for a second.
Black was taken down for a yellow card near the edge of the area and Mark Millar's stinging drive was well blocked by the keeper before John Carter launched the rebound over the bar.
Thistle were creating chances but to no avail as an off-balance Black headed narrowly wide from a swinging cross and Adam's turn and shot from the edge of the area fizzed wide on 41 minutes.
Black's nifty chip released Adam but he couldn't capitalise, while at the other end ex-Pollok forward Hanlon was a handful and nearly managed to dart away but Largs defenders managed to clear.
Largs started the second half with purpose as they really started to dominate possession as St Roch's were beginning to chase the game and an equaliser seemed inevitable.
Laurie McMaster's header from a corner was cleared off the line by Martin.
Martin Orr danced around three players on the right wing as he tried to launch an attack but was tripped yielding another caution for St Roch's.
St Roch's keeper Jamie McGuire saved the ball from Begley after Black whipped in another dangerous cross, then Creag Little picked up a yellow card.
It was no surprise that Thistle's leveller came as a result of Black's speedy wing play on 64 minutes as he launched a ball low into the box from the left wing which ricocheted off a defender's ankle at the far post and into the net.
Thistle's upbeat mood was dampened three minutes later as Millar was surprisingly ordered off for a challenge on Ross Dickson.
The arrival of Paul Harkins as substitute calmed matters down for Thistle though and he was to be a pivotal player in midfield for the remainder of the game. There were a couple of clearances off the line as corners and free-kicks reigned in on the St Roch's box, with each clearance getting massive cheers from the visiting support.
Despite the numerical disadvantage, Largs were laying siege on the St Roch's goal and Faulds had a marvellous opportunity to finish the game off on 89 minutes after another great run from Black.
Keeper McGuire and defender through themselves at the effort and somehow managed to clear the piledriver.
A minute later and sub Kevin Struthers dived full stretch but just couldn't get his flying header on target.
There were a number of stoppages over the course of the game and there was anger from Largs after one of their clearances to allow a St Roch's player to receive treatment was not reciprocated with the ball being passed back, and instead St Roch's tried to mount a desperate late attack which fizzled out. 
Largs sub Ryan McKie was also cautioned late on.
With both sets of fans in the old Thistle shed making a real cup atmosphere out of this encounter, it sets up a thrilling replay in Royston Road in Glasgow next week.
Largs will need to 'keep the head' against a side who have a formidable home record in league and cup this season, but showed in the second half of last Saturday's encounter that they could have the master of them with the right attitude and application.
Thistle: McGowan, Orr, McMaster, Little, Begley, Faulds, Carter, Millar, Adam, Muir, Black. Subs: Harkins, McKie, Struthers, Farrell, Fleming.
