teamline notes
  • Teamlines derived from PTFC / SPFL.
  • Both sides generally in playing order.
  • Cove filled 8 of their 9 allocated bench slots.
extra notes
  • text commentary gives Foster the stoppage time yellow, but video backs up McKenna per the 'network'. Fluorescent boots to blame.
dubious goals panel
  • Thistle's first was one of the most difficult goals to deal with in recent years. In real-time, almost all commentators/reporters acknowledged that Scott Tiffoney's free-kick took a deflection en route to goal, and it was Zak Rudden's name who appeared as scorer, almost universally, in reports, the facsimile of those present being distributed across "the network". Having closely scrutinized the video evidence, it seems that the ball bypasses Rudden, and that the only deflection came from Cove's #5, Scott Ross, who tried to clear it with a back-heel flick, but only served to help the ball on its way to the net. Ross himself admitted to this, in conversation with a teammate, picked up within earshot of a Thistle media team reporter. The key question arising, is whether or not Scott Tiffoney's free-kick was net bound and we think not; the trajectory looks like it would been 6 to 10 yards from goal. When Ross made contact, he was standing almost on the 6-yard line and there's little doubt that his touch put the ball on a new path which found the corner of the net. The camera angle from behind the goals shows this best. Credit to referee Craig Napier who read the goal this way in real-time, listing an own goal in his report. Our verdict: Scott Ross own goal, Scott Tiffoney assist.
