Dundee v Arbroath KO 15:00 29/02

Falkirk 2 – 0 Arbroath




Falkirk 2 – 0 Arbroath

The Lichties exited the William Hill Scottish Cup this evening as two second half goals gave Falkirk the victory.

Bobby Linn and Scott Stewart came in for Dale Hilson who was cup tied and Craig Wighton who was ineligible after signing after the original tie had taken place.

The first half was very even with the Lichties enjoying more possession but Falkirk looking dangerous in attack.

The second half had only just kicked off when Falkirk made the break through as Declan McManus scored from close range after a corner kick.

Luke Donnelly looked to be fouled in the 61st minute in the Falkirk box but instead found himself booked by referee Euan Anderson.

Falkirk made it 2-0 in the 66th minute when Conor Sammon tapped in an McManus cross.

The Lichties toiled up front but didn’t really threaten the Falkirk goal with the hosts looking threatening every time they countered.

Substitute Logan Chalmers forced Mutch into a save just before the full time whistle.

A disappointing result and the Lichties’s Scottish Cup comes to an end.

Thank you to the 222 Lichties who made the trip and braved the icy cold evening. We always appreciate your support regardless of the result.

C’mon the Lichties
