The happy new year carried on into the Scottish Cup as the Mighty surprised everyone with a victory in Perth over in-form St Johnstone. A stunning free kick by Slates in the first five minutes proved to be the difference between the two sides and it took some resolute defending to keep things that way. Jamie McDonald also proved yet again what a top signing he has been with an unbelievable triple save as the match drew to a close.
The support were also in fine fettle and now have a trip to a lower league team from Glasgow to look forward to in the next round. Another fantastic piece of news was Greg Kiltie signing a contract extension, that’s a fine piece of business by the club although they did leave it a bit long for my liking…if we can get Rory and Slater to follow suit then it will at least provide us with some stability.
