You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

Thistle beat Albion Rovers 1-0 in the League Cup on 1/9/1979 and in doing so Rovers made history by being the first club to be knocked out of the same competition twice in the same season. They had lost on penalties to Stenhousemuir after 90 mins in the previous round but it was discovered that the referee had forgotten to play 30 minutes extra time. A replay was ordered which they won.
