Arbroath are heading for the play-offs, but boss Dick Campbell is determined to enjoy what’s left of the League One season.
Saturday’s 5-0 thrashing of East Fife put Campbell’s side six points clear of fifth place Stranraer with just two games to go.
An overwhelming goal difference means it would take a collapse of Titanic proportions for Arbroath not to finish in the top four.
But there’s still work to be done, said Campbell, and he wants his side to go into the play-off fixtures on the back of a couple of wins.
He said: “It’s not about anybody else except Arbroath now.
“We have two games to go, at home to Airdrie and away to Queen’s Park.
“We can take it from there but to go into them with the five goals is nice.
“I was very happy with our approach to the game and we were worthy winners.
“So bring on Airdrie at home next week – it’s another big game.”
To be fair it was the home side who started the better of the two and looked more likely to open the scoring.
Their best chance came when Aaron Dunsmore released Craig Thomson down the line.
Thomson sent an inviting cross along the face of goal which only lacked a finish.
Arbroath struggled to get into the game, but once they did they never looked back.
They took the lead in somewhat fortunate circumstances when Michael McKenna’s cross was allowed to trickle through the East Fife defence and into the bottom corner.
From there, the game was as one sided as you’ll see.
Former East Fife striker Ryan Wallace doubled the lead when he broke into the box and lashed a stunning effort beyond Ben MacKenzie.
The Fifers were possibly a little unlucky to be two goals down at the interval, but there was no doubting which side was the best in the second 45.
Some neat build-up play resulted in Gavin Swankie setting up Leighton McIntosh who made no mistake from close range.
It was 4-0 when Colin Hamilton headed home Wallace’s corner.
East Fife’s dire afternoon was compounded when Chris Kane picked up his second yellow and left his side with 10 men with quarter of an hour to go.
And Arbroath rubbed further salt in the wound when Bobby Linn curled a sublime strike out of MacKenzie’s reach.
A lot of Fife fans had left Bayview long before Linn’s effort, and manager Darren Young, who had to name himself amongst a bench which had just three outfield players, admitted it wasn’t good enough.
He said: “We’ll be expecting a much improved performance next week against Albion Rovers.
“The minimum is for us to compete.
“Arbroath are an experienced side and from middle to front they have goals.
“As soon as their first goal went in it was one sided.
“But up until then they hadn’t had a shot.
“Their second goal comes from us being on the break and with options, but we pick the wrong option.
“We did that all over the park, all day long.”
