Arbroath v Dundee KO 19:45 22/01

Dunfermline Athletic 1 – 0 Arbroath




Dunfermline Athletic 1 – 0 Arbroath

Absolutely heartwrenching result for the Lichties who were the better side in today’s game and had forced Welsh internationalist Owain Fôn Williams into several outstanding saves with Colin Hamilton also desperately unlucky as his early 30 yard strike hit the post ran across the goal and then back out of play.

Arbroath who were in control for long periods of the game were dealt the killer blow in the 91st minute when substitute Kevin O’Hara headed in.

The Lichties will have taken much confidence but face another incredibly difficult game away to Tynecastle on Tuesday night.
