Arbroath have a perfect record in the Betfred Cup and thumped Stirling 6-1 in their last outing but Gayfield manager Dick Campbell does not reckon Hibs will be too fearful of his side.
Campbell said: “We will go to Easter Road looking to win but I do not think the scoreline at Stirling will have Hibs overly-concerned as a lot of the goals came late on when they were chasing things.
“It was good for the likes of David Gold and Greig Spence to get a couple of goals each so we can go there with a bit of confidence in the ranks.
“We had Hibs watched at the weekend and they are a good side.
“However, we know that if we can get something from this game then we will have a chance of qualifying when we play our final game and that is good going.”
Ricky Little is included after becoming a dad at the weekend and Scott Stewart is available after injury.
