A first half goal burst saw us progress into the Fourth round of the William Hill Scottish Cup where a visit to Ibrox to face Rangers before the live Sky Sports cameras awaits us.
There were a few changes to the line -up which played the 20 minutes in the gusting wind two days previously.
Pat Scullion and Gordon Smith were restored to the side with Aldin El Zubaidi and Chris Kane dropping to the bench. Arbroath meanwhile remained unchanged from the previous two games.
A blistering start saw us take the lead with 23 minutes gone when an Adamson drive was deflected into the path of Greig SPENCE who stabbed the ball past Fleming from six yards.
Ten minutes later we went further ahead when Liam CALLAGHAN scored his first senior goal with a 20 yard strike which deflected off Munro to deceive the keeper.
We then went three up on 37 minutes when Dean BRETT shot home from ten yards and three minutes later BRETT got his second goal of the night from the penalty spot after Smith had been brought down by Munro.
Spence then had the ball in the net but his effort was ruled offside and it was the Red Licties who were to pull a goal back three minutes from the break when Bobby LINN blasted home a 25 yard strike.
Seven minutes into the second half LINN reduced the deficit further with a half volley and midway through the second half he saw a shot come off the inside of the post.
