ARBROATH are now the underdogs in the Ramsdens Challenge Cup after drawing a semi-final trip to Queen of the South.

The tie will take place at Palmerston Park on Sunday, October 14, in what will be the Lichties first national semi-final in over 50 years.

Queens booked their place in the semi-finals after a penalty shoot-out win against Rangers at Ibrox.

And after Ally McCoist’s men’s exit from the competition, Partick Thistle have now been installed as favourites to win by bookmakers at 6/4.

They are followed by Cowdenbeath at 11/4 and Queen of the South at 3/1.

Arbroath have odds of 9/2.
