Arbroath boss Dick Campbell wants to avoid cup custard pie

Arbroath manager Dick Campbell has warned that he doesn’t want a proverbial custard pie in the face when they host Berwick Rangers in the William Hill Scottish Cup third round today.

The Lichties are sitting pretty in fourth place in League One after a Rab Douglas-inspired victory over Queen’s Park at Hampden last Saturday.

They are big favourites to see off a Berwick team from the lower division but Campbell is determined not to take the visitors lightly at Gayfield this afternoon.

Campbell said: “You look forward to these cup games but you also have to make sure you don’t get a custard pie in the face.

“We are at home but Berwick will be tough opponents for us.

“We want to be in the next round and we will be doing our utmost to get there.”

The aforementioned Douglas, who made his debut for the Lichties at the grand old age of 45 against the Spiders, won’t be needed as regular goalie David Hutton is back available.

Campbell confirmed: “Yes, there will be no Rab in goal but he’s like Frank Sinatra so I’m sure there will be another comeback some other time!”

The Lichties have received international clearance for striker Leighton McIntosh, who has been playing in Iceland with UMF Selfoss.

Ryan McCord is also available but Gavin Swankie is out.
