Three and easy for Partick

Partick sealed their spot in the semi-finals of the Ramsdens Cup with a comfortable 3-0 win over Raith.

The Jags, early pace-setters in the Scottish Football League, saw off their First Division opponents thanks to Chris Erskine's brace and another from Steven Craig in the space of eight second-half minutes.

Erskine finally broke the deadlock five minutes after the restart when he converted Craig's left-wing cross from 12 yards.

Craig then quickly got in on the act himself with a left-footed finish as Erskine turned provider inside the penalty area.

And the game was soon all over as a contest when Paul Paton set up Erskine, who showed his quality before beating Raith stopper Allan Fleming with a well-taken finish.
