On paper there should be zero contest between Arbroath and Celtic but, as the famous saying goes, football is played on grass.
Celtic learned that all too well at the start of the month. In front of their own fans at Parkhead, Neil Lennon’s charges struggled to convert their dominance into goals against Arbroath as the second divisioners scored both goals on the day: a bizarre own goal from Alex Keddie put Celtic ahead, while Steven Doris knocked in a late strike to earn a famous Scottish Cup draw.
Celtic have since progressed to the knockout phase of the Champions League while moving three points clear at the top of the SPL, and now they’ll be looking to forged ahead in the quest of winning as many domestic trophies as possible.
Celtic striker Gary Hooper is in line for a start despite having been ill with a virus for a few days, while defender Mikael Lustig and midfielder Paddy McCourt have recovered from hamstring injuries in time for the cup tie.
Kris Commons (thigh) and James Forrest (hamstring) will both be absent for Celtic.
So what is there to say about Arbroath?
Sitting joint 5th in the Scotland’s third tier and a long way behind the pack in the race for automatic promotion, minnows Arbroath have exceeded expectations in simply getting Celtic to come to Gayfield Park for the replay.
Arbroath come into the game with just one win in their last five, however according to midfielder Alex Keddie the Red Lichties have a chance.
Coming to Gayfield will be a shock for some of the players at Celtic. Hopefully their attitude is off and we can produce a shock.
