upandatemFrom the Herald:   ARBROATH manager Paul Sheerin says he knows just how much is at stake in tomorrow's (Saturday) Scottish Cup tie with Montrose at Links Park.

Now the Lichties have the opportunity to make amends for their derby defeat earlierin the campaign, the boss says the players are desperate to get the right result this time. 

"It certainly has been an exciting draw for us, although it may be have been nicer to have a home game.  But this tie means so much for everybody involved because of the rivalry between the two clubs.

"We are definitely wanting to rectify things from the last time but I think the players will be much better prepared tomorrow.   The last time I don't think some of them knew quite what to expect from this derby.

"But we know it is just more than a game for the fans and everyone else involved at the club so we know we have to make it through to the next round."
