JAMES CRAIGEN was de­lighted to see old club Dun­fermline shock Hearts to go top of the Cham­pi­onship — even if it makes Ar­broath’s task all the harder in to­day’s Bet­fred Cup clash. But the former mid­fielder is con­vinced the Red Lichties can pull off an up­set of their own and progress to the last eight. Craigen, who played over 50 games for Dun­fermline in an 18-month spell be­fore leav­ing last year, said: ‘It’s the chance to get to the quar­ter-fi­nals of a ma­jor tour­na­ment, so we’re all ex­cited and we’re feel­ing re­ally pos­i­tive. ‘It will be a tough fix­ture. Dun­fermline are fly­ing at the mo­ment but, if we can play to the best of our abil­i­ties, we can cause them prob­lems. ‘They’ve started the season re­ally well. But we’ll be go­ing out there look­ing to get one over on them.’
