ASC boost promotion bid

ARBROATH SC kept their promotion bid on track with a home win over Lochee Harp on Saturday.

Steve McPhee opened the scoring for ASC before Scott McDonald added a second just before half-time.

The visitors pulled one back with 15 minutes left and applied plenty of pressure to try and grab an equaliser.

But they were unable to find the back of the net and ASC picked up the three points.

Tomorrow (Saturday), ASC will be in cup action when they have a home tie against Armadale Thistle in the third round of the East of Scotland Cup.
