Match Preview

Strachan set for Arbroath bow League leaders Arbroath will unleash new signing Adam Strachan on visitors Elgin City. Strachan has signed after a spell as a trialist and the former Partick Thistle, Ross County and Clyde winger will be joined by fellow new recruit Allan McManus, who has joined on loan from Dumbarton. However central defenders Stuart Malcolm and Craig Wedderburn are out through suspension along with the injured Alan Rattray. Gayfield manager Paul Sheerin said: "Elgin will be coming here determined to get the three points after seeing their own promotion hopes hit at the weekend by Queen's Park so they will be very dangerous opponents. "A couple of our recent performances have been flat so I am hoping that Adam's arrival will lift us and get the energy back amongst the players." Elgin are missing Neil MacDonald. The midfielder is suspended following his disputed red card against Queen's Park at the weekend and the Borough Briggs side will also be missing midfielder Jake Inglis with a calf problem and Craig Frizzell who has a knee knock. Manager Ross Jack admitted that he has concerns over two other players that he did not wish to name. He said: "We could be stretched that thinly that Paul Miller may have to go on the bench despite being only half fit. "I would much rather by taking on Arbroath at full strength but we will patch our boys up as best we can and give it a real go. This is a big game for us and a win would be very welcome indeed."

Match Report

Red Lichties remain top with win Arbroath remain at the summit of the Scottish Third Division courtesy of a comfortable 2-0 win over Elgin. Knowing that anything other than a victory would give Stranraer the opportunity to leapfrog them, the Red Lichties started brightly, taking the lead in the third minute. Paul Sheerin was the orchestrator, jinking his way down the right wing before sending in a delicious cross which Gavin Swankie nodded home. Elgin found themselves two down in the 20th minute when Kieran McAnespie found Paul Sheerin, who fired home. Any hopes the visitors had of getting back into the encounter evaporated in the 53rd minute when Paul Kaczan was sent off for a second bookable offence.
