United eye up league and cup double

Have your say

Arbroath United captain Marc Petrie says their fate is in their own hands as the Lochlands men are still in contention for a league and cup double.

However it was a mixed weekend for United who suffered defeat in the league against Watsonians on Saturday, but bounced back to win their Scottish cup quarter-final against Stoneywood Dyce on Sunday.

Tomorrow (Saturday) they will make the trip to Heriots before facing Grange in a cup semi-final next week.

And Marc says the team are clear on what they have to do if they want double glory.

He told HeraldSport: “The target now is just not to lose another game and if we do that we win the league.

“Everything is in our hands and we have six games left so it is a pretty simple equation.

“We are capable of winning both if we stick to our disciplines.”
