THE battle for the Ramsdens cup is already under way and, due to the inclusion of another southside football team, it’s never had so much publicity.
Rangers have won their first game, against tough opposition in the form of Brechin City and go through to do take on Falkirk.
However, the big, Glasgow challenge is between third division Queen’s Park and their first division foe, Partick Thistle.
The Maryhill outfit will fancy their chances in the tie, but if there’s one thing to be said for cup games, it’s that anything can happen over 90 minutes.
For cup games are the footballing epitome of the David and Goliath scenario: it is the chance for smaller teams to prove their worth against the bigger opposition.
The Extra has teamed up with cup sponsors Ramsdens to give away a pair of home tickets for the game at Hampden on August 14.
So it’s Spiders against Jags and to be part of the action, all you have to do is answer the following question:
