ARBROATH FC are gearing up for one of their biggest nights of the year tonight (Wednesday) when Celtic come to town in the Scottish Cup this evening.

The game is set to be broadcast live on Sky Sports and a near capacity crowd is expected at Gayfied for the replay.

The match will be an all ticket encounter and there will be no cash payment turnstiles in operation.

Turnstiles are set to open at 6.45 p.m., with home supporters using the five turnstiles at the Harbour end and away supporters entering through the five turnstiles at the Pleasureland end.

The club are also advising supporters that they allow plenty of time to get to the ground as parking near to Gayfield will be at a premium.

Fans are being reminded that alcohol, can and bottles will not be permitted and bags maybe searched by stewards on entry.

Only smaller flags without sticks will be allowed in and large surfing flags will not be permitted.

A statement from Arbroath FC said: “The club sincerely hopes that everyone attending the game has a thoroughly enjoyable evening and that all supporters are well behaved and do not bring any large flags, flares or other unwanted objects into the ground which could compromise the safety and well-being of others attending who wish to enjoy a competitive football game.

“There will be a larger than usual number of stewards on duty in and around the stadium who will be happy to assist with any queries spectators may have.”
