Dundee vs Arbroath – Match Preview

cinch Scottish Championship – Game 03 – Season 2022/2023

Friday 12th August 2022, Den’s Park, Dundee, 7.45pm kick off

Arbroath make the short trip down the A92 to Dundee tonight as we take on Gary Bowyer’s side under the lights live on BBC Scotland.

Den’s Park hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for the Lichties in recent years, but we hope with a large support cheering us on that we can do you proud tonight.

We last played Dundee in the shortened Championship season, and there are many familiar faces still remaining from that Dundee team, and former loan Lichtie Ben Williamson is now at Den’s on loan after signing a new deal at Rangers.

The Dundee side is full of experience with the likes of Jordan McGhee, Paul McGowan, Paul McMullan and Niall McGinn with exciting talent also in support like Josh Mulligan.

Arbroath will welcome back Jason Thomson and Captain Thomas O’Brien to the side this evening as Arbroath look to be at full strength for tonights match.

We know it will be another incredibly tough test, with Dundee always so strong against the Lichties in the past but with your support we hope we can get you the result.

C’mon the Lichties
