Arbroath manager Dick Campbell would like both his own team and rivals Alloa to avoid dreaded drop

Arbroath manager Dick Campbell hopes to make it a hat-trick of league wins against Alloa but would still like the Wasps to avoid the dreaded drop.

The Lichties travel to the Indodrill Stadium today boasting a perfect record against their fellow part-timers in the Championship this season.

The Angus men won 1-0 at the same ground back on August 24 before clinching a 2-1 victory over Peter Grant’s side at Gayfield on November 2.

While he will end his team out looking for three points again, Campbell is looking at the bigger picture and hopes that both Arbroath and Alloa manage to stay in the division come the end of the campaign.

Their hosts currently sit rock bottom of the table.

“I really do hope Alloa stay up with us,” said Campbell.

“It isn’t easy to survive in this league, particularly when you are part-time, but I think both clubs have given it a real go and deserve praise for that.

“I am more concerned about my own team, obviously, and we are just seven points ahead of Alloa at the moment so we are looking to kick on.”

The Lichties, who are hoping to return to winning form after a disappointing defeat at home to Morton last Saturday, have taken Logan Chalmers on loan from Dundee United, while Robert Wilson and Greig Spence have moved to Stenhousemuir.
