Queen's Park travelled to Alloa on Sunday 6th March 1977 for a Scottish Cup replay, both teams having played a league match the day before. Queen's had won at Cowdenbeath whilst Alloa had won at Forfar, and Alloa won the replay by the only goal of the match.

Me, apparently.. I had it in my head that these games took place two nights apart.

Nothing to do with this but can you email me please? I have been trying to get in touch but my message was bounced back.

Dundee United and Berwick Rangers drew 1-1 at Tannadice in the Scottish Cup on Tuesday 4th February 1975, with United winning the replay 1-0 at Shielfield the following evening. My favourite thing about this tie is that Berwick actually managed to produce a full match programme for the replay, a commendable effort!

Yes, I have that programme somewhere. Amazing. Most "bigger" clubs would have struggled to do so. In fact for postponed league games clubs often issued the same programme months later with just the date changed.
