Speaking after his tie had become the seventh of the day to fall foul of the weather, Partick Thistle Manager, Ian McCall said:-
"The referee had a long hard look at it on two or three occasions and maybe given another two hours you never know it might have been played but he has made the right decision. It is not that bad it is just that the weather caught us out like it caught a lot of teams out."
The postponement means that both clubs are in the draw for the next round and McCall added "We are looking forward to see who we get, I am sure Dunfermline will do likewise. Whethere there is a carrot of a big team or a home draw against a smaller club. It should make it a good night a week on Tuesday."
Apology from Partick Thistle
