Arbroath can edge entertaining battle of lower league table-toppers

Two of Scotland's most in-form strikers face off too

Scottish Challenge Cup third round
BBC Alba, 7.35pm Friday

Arbroath should have too much firepower for Edinburgh City in the Challenge Cup, but it could be close.

Both sides have punched above their weight in their respective divisions of Ladbrokes League One and Two and they surprisingly top the table.

That would suggest the Gayfield side should be too strong for the capital club at the coldest and windiest venue in British football.

Bobby Linn has ten goals for the hosts and Blair Henderson has 13 for the visitors, so there should be goals when two of Scotland's most in-form strikers face off.

But Dick Campbell's men are strong at home and should have just enough.

Recommendation
Arbroath to win & both teams to score
1pt 9-4 bet365
