Queen of the South vs Arbroath – Match Preview

cinch Scottish Championship – Game 06 – Season 2021/2022

Saturday 18th September 2021, Palmerston Park, Dumfries, 3.00pm kick off

Arbroath make the long trip south tomorrow to take on Queen of the South in Dumfries in our 6th match of the cinch Scottish Championship.

Alan Johnston’s side have had wins over Greenock Morton and Raith Rovers both away from home, and have suffered defeat at home to Kilmarnock and Hamilton Academical with a defeat also on the opening day of the season away to Partick Thistle.

The Doonhammers are almost unrecognisable from last season with only really 4 established first team players surviving with 19 new recruits.

The Lichties last visit to Dumfries seen them come from behind thanks to an inspired come back from Scott Stewart.

Arbroath Manager Dick Campbell will have another selection headache with his entire squad all in contention for the match, but it would hard to see him changing the starting XI after last weekend’s performance.

It is a very long journey but Queen of the South are offering a pay per view for £10 from

It will be another extremely tough match but for those traveling we hope you can get right behind the team from the very start.

C’mon the Lichties!
