Arbroath vs Queen of the South – Match Preview

cinch Scottish Championship – Game 34 – Season 2021/2022

Saturday 16th April 2022, Gayfield Park, Arbroath, 3.00pm kick off.

Arbroath welcome Willie Gibson’s Queen of the South to Gayfield today for a huge match of importance for both sides.

Queen of the South are battling for Championship survival with Arbroath having the chance to close in on Kilmarnock with the two sides meeting next Friday.

Kilmarnock will be hoping their on-loan striker at Queen of the South, Innes Cameron will score the goals tomorrow to help his parent club.

Despite their Championship position we know full well that from our previous encounters this season and over the past few seasons we know that Willie Gibson will have his Queen of the South side fired up for the game.

The past two games have shown there has been very little to separate the sides with a goalless draw at Palmerston in February, with Michael McKenna cancelling out Cameron’s opening goal at Gayfield back in November, whilst 10 men Arbroath won at Palmerston in September.

Dick Campbell has hinted in the press that he will keep faith in the side that won at Hamilton last weekend with Jack Hamilton’s goal giving the Lichties a crucial 3 points.

It is hoped that Jason Thomson who missed last week with illness will be back in the squad for this match.

It will be another extremely tough match but we hope you can get right behind the team from the very start. This game could be MASSIVE in our history, so please get down and cheer on the team!

C’mon the Lichties!
