Thistle boss Stuart Davidson believes Saturday's shock defeat at Kilwinning could be the 'kick up the backside' they needed as face up to their big Macron Scottish Cup trip to Kirremuir on Saturday.
Largs face the 260 mile round road trip to Angus on Saturday intent on making amends, and changes are expected to the line-up, but the management believe that the players can rise to the challenge.
Davidson said: "We all know how big the Scottish Junior Cup is and we will bounce back. They are a good bunch of boys and really enthusiastic.
"We want to get the defeat out of our system and there is no better way to do that than in the Scottish Cup."
"I have received a report on Kirriemuir - who drew 0-0 with Dundee North End on Saturday - and I will be keeping that up my sleeve.
"They are only a couple of points off Luncarty who we played in the last round so we are expecting a similar game. It will be a tough tie but we will be going in with all guns blazing.
"Saturday was a blip for us but it was the wee kick up the backside that we maybe needed.
"Last year is by with - it was a good cup run but we have a new team now and we want to make new memories.
"In terms of team selection for this Saturday, the players have given me plenty to think about."
