Thistle took the lead through Gilmour (a simple finish, 4) then Thomson's 25-yard looping shot deceived everyone and went in off the post (18). Motherwell made it 2-1 by h-t. Gilmour completed his hat-trick from close range. The homesters were poor on the day.

ET 15/2/1958. Ledgerwood, McGill, Brown, Thomson(L), Crawford, Hogan, Mallon, Anderson, Gilmour, Wilson, Keenan. Scorers as yet unsourced.

30. Sat-22-Feb-1958 [h] W3-0 Third Lanark (Scottish Reserve League)

ET 15/3/1958. Renucci, Collins, Thomson (R), Harvey, Hogan, Brown, Newman, Bell, KERR, Henderson, Keenan.
A huge clearance by Brown had the Airdrie defence in bother and all Kerr had to do was tap the ball in (27). After that the teams traded close things until half-time. Report only to h-t.
34. Wed-19-Mar-1958 [h] W5-3 St Mirren (Scottish Reserve League)

ET 22/3/1958. Thomson, Brodie, Thomson (R), Harvey, Collins, Henderson, McGill, Thomson (L), Mallon, Wilson, Anderson.
For all that Kilmarnock had the bulk of the play, Thistle's forwards looked the more dangerous from fewer chances. Either way, it was goalless at half-time. Report only to h-t.
36. Sat-05-Apr-1958 [h] L1-2 Raith Rovers (Scottish Reserve League)
SM 6/4/1958. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.

ET 26/4/1958.Thomson, Brodie, Brown, Harvey, Davidson, Thomson (L), Anderson, Bell, MALLON (2), Henderson, McGill.
Mallon finished off a pass by Henderson to put Thistle 1-up. These two combined well and were unlucky on occasions not to increase the lead. At the other end the Fifers got no joy out of a stout Thistle defence. Report only to h-t.
40. Mon-28-Apr-1958 [h] W4-1 Falkirk (Scottish Reserve League)
GH 29/4/1958. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
