SO much moore to come from lichties

The Lichties head on to the pitch at Gayfield tomorrow, re-energised after the international break as they take on East Fife.

Defending their so far undefeated record, the players will have to knuckle down and focus as they bid to make it five wins in a row at the top of the league table.

However, there was bad news last night with the news that Jack Smith has dislocated an elbow at training and faces two months out, while Jordan Lowdon is a doubt for tomorrow’s game.

Arbroath manager Allan Moore said: “Jack took a bad one at training and had to be taken to hospital. It’s a real shame for the boy.

“It looks like Jordan will miss the East Fife game too but we will just need to cope.

“Saturday will be another good test for us but one the players are looking forward to.

“We need to keep the pressure on and not lose the momentum we have built up already.”

The injury news came after a good start to the week for Moore, who won the SPFL League Two Manager of the Month Award for August.

He said: “I’m happy to get this award but it has been a real team effort so far this season.

“Credit must go to the whole coaching and playing staff but it’s only four games gone and we will look to build on the good start we’ve made.”
