Arbroath vs Dunfermline Athletic – Match Preview

Ladbrokes Championship – Game 27 – Season 2019 / 2020

Wednesday 4th March 2020, Gayfield Park, Arbroath, 7.45pm kick off

The Lichties return to Gayfield this evening as Dunfermline Athletic as visit for our 3rd match this season.

It has been a stop start few weeks for the Lichties as they look to build on their 3 wins a row with the game against Ayr United abandoned at half time before our game away to Dundee being postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Dunfermline Athletic recorded a fantastic 2-0 win over Dundee United on Saturday, with Kevin Nisbet scoring his 23rd of the season and young Celtic loan striker Jonathan Afolabi netting his first senior goal. Nisbet was substituted early with an ankle knock but should feature for the Pars tonight.

Arbroath without a game last weekend should have a fully fit squad to choose from with rich competition to get in the starting eleven. With so many games in March, the depth and quality of our squad will be needed.

It will be another extremely game for the Lichties, but we hope to have your support behind us from kick off.

Would all supporters attending this Saturday’s Ladbrokes Championship match between Arbroath and Dunfermline Athletic at Gayfield Park on Wednesday 4th March please note that supporter segregation will be in place.

A large crowd is expected with Arbroath hosting Dunfermline Athletic as both teams are vying for a promotion place in the Championship.

It is acknowledged that this decision does restrict the normal movement of supporters inside Gayfield however it is an absolute club priority to ensure that all Supporters can attend the match in a safe and friendly environment and enjoy the football on show.

Arbroath FC supporters will occupy the Harbour End of Gayfield, which will sweep round to the the TV Gantry whilst also gaining access to the Harbour side of the Main stand.

Dunfermline Athletic supporters will be allocated to the the Pleasureland End (Switchie End) of Gayfield whilst also being permitted to Sections A and B of the Main Stand.

We expect a large crowd to watch this week’s anticipated fixture.

Your co-operation of the segregation arrangements is greatly appreciated by both clubs.

Disabled Access;

Gayfield Park, home of Arbroath FC has two enclosed disabled seating areas on either side of the main stand which are reserved for wheelchair users and their assistants / carers. Each area can accommodate up to 3 wheelchairs and 3 assistants / carers.

These areas also have wall attached seats which fold down in place for any assistant or carer that is present on the day.

Each side is accessible via a smooth flat surface suitable for wheel chairs with a disabled toilet on the opposite side of the stand.

Our match day stewards are always on hand to give assistance either into the ground, or to the accessible areas.

Unfortunately due to Gayfield’s location we don’t own any parking spaces around the ground, but there is plenty of spaces on either side of the ground to park which is all completely free.

If the distance from the main gate to the accessible area is too far, then we are happy to accommodate a vehicle into the ground for a close drop off. In this circumstance we would please ask that you contact the club a day or two before hand and arrive a little earlier than normal.

We offer a concession admission for those with a disability and free admission to any assistant or carer present.

We are a community club and hope to give all visiting and home fans the same experience as they are welcomed into our ground.


Unfortunately due to Gayfield’s location we don’t own any parking spaces around the ground, but there is plenty of spaces on either side of the ground to park which is all completely free.

If you are coming from the direction of Dundee, there are many spaces on Queen’s Drive next to Pleasureland, of if you continue past Gayfield there is Inchcape Park which is your first right after Gayfield. It is next to the Sea which offers street and overspill onto the grass.
