No bother for Broath
Arbroath have an injury and suspension free squad for the visit of leaders Queen of the South.
Manager Paul Sheerin has told his players to put thoughts of playing Celtic in the Scottish Cup in a fortnight out of their minds for the 90 minutes.
Sheerin said: "I am not going to lie and say that no-one has mentioned Celtic after our win over Inverurie as they have.
"It is an exciting tie but we have to stop thinking about it for a while as playing Queen of the South is a huge game.
"They turned us over 6-0 and knocked us out of the Ramsdens Cup at the semi-final stage so there is plenty of incentive to do well regardless of looking to secure a starting place against Celtic."
Queen of the South have included fit again defender Mark Durnan for the trip north to face one of his former clubs.
The Doonhamers have striker Kevin Smith out due to a groin problem but midfielder David Hopkirk is available after his return from a successful loan period at Annan where he scored five times in three games with
Manager Allan Johnston said: "David is back and full of confidence so the loan move worked well for everyone and he will travel to Gayfield.
"This game will be a real test as Arbroath run us really close in the Ramsdens Cup semi-final and will be out to make up for that. However, we are undefeated in the league this season and are in no mood to give that record up."
