In Scotland, Reece Cole played the full 90 minutes as Partick Thistle took a point from their trip to the Championship’s bottom side Alloa Athletic. Adam Brown gave the home side the lead just past the hour. Stuart Bannigan then fluffed a golden chance to level from the penalty spot shortly after but made no such mistake when presented with a second chance from the spot 16 minutes from time. The point sees Partick remain eighth ahead of a home game against Dundee United next Saturday.
