Andy Munro setting sights on Hampden clean sheet

A clean sheet at Hampden is all Andy Munro wants from Arbroath’s game against Queen’s Park this weekend.

The Spiders have won three out of three clashes with the Lichties this season and Munro believes shutting the promotion-chasing side out is the least the loyal Arbroath fans deserve to see.

He said: “We go to Queen’s Park and we’ve not beaten them this season, they’ve beaten us three times and all with early goals.

“So we want to go and keep a clean sheet, it’s the least the fans deserve.”

Arbroath are nine points off of a promotion play-off spot following last weekend’s 3-0 victory over East Stirling and while Munro knows anything can happen, he said that professionalism and momentum could very well propel them towards the top four.

He added: “We take every game as it comes and if we can pick up a bit of momentum, who’s to say we can’t get up towards the play-offs?

“This is one of the strangest leagues I’ve ever played in. A couple weeks ago we were looking at the fourth then suddenly we’re looking over our shoulders and trying to get clear of relegation.

“Right now we’re eight points clear but anything can happen. We’ve got to keep professional and pick up points as we go.”
