Falkirk   2 - 2   Partick Thistle

Falkirk v Partick

Cup - Falkirk 2-2 Partick Thistle

Kris Doolan's late strike kept Partick Thistle Thistle in the Scottish Cup by earning a replay against Falkrik.

Thistle had taken the lead with only eight minutes on the clock when Liam Buchanan met a corner to shoot home.

But Mark Millar levelled before the break after beating three men, and Jack Compton put Falkirk into the lead with deflected strike on 72 minutes.

The Bairns appeared to be through to round five, but substitute Doohlan poked the ball four minutes from time.

The winners of the replay at Firhill will face a fifth-round trip to Scottish Premier League side St Johnstone, who beat Hearts 1-0 on Tuesday night.

Thistle made a dream start when Buchanan was on hand to convert Paul Cairney's in-swinging corner with a left-footed shot which found the net via the post.

David Rowson then shot wide of the target for the Jags, before Falkirk's Kallum Higginbotham tried his luck from distance, but the ball travelled over the bar.

But the Bairns clawed their way back into the tie with a fantastic solo effort by Millar.

The 22-year-old former Celtic midfielder ghosted past three Thistle players on his way into the box, before finishing expertly past goalkeeper Scott Fox from six yards.

The match livened up considerably after the break, with Buchanan shooting just wide, while at the other end Compton forced a good save from Fox from a direct free-kick.

Compton eventually got the Bairns in front from close range and it looked like that would be enough for them to progress to the next round.

Millar nearly made it 3-1 for Falkirk with a shot which just cleared the Jags bar.

But, Doolan, only on the field 10 minutes, popped up inside the six yard box to prod the ball past Robert Olejnik and seal the replay.
