What channel is Arbroath v Inverness on? Premiership play-off TV details, live stream, kick-off time

All roads lead to Gayfield on Friday night as Arbroath and Inverness CT go head-to-head in the Premiership play-off semi-final second leg.

It is a winner-takes-all tie after the goalless first leg at the Caledonian Stadium on Tuesday with the possibility of extra-time and penalties required to determine which side will keep their hopes of promotion from the Championship alive.

Billy Dodds’ Inverness side, who finished third in the table and defeated Partick Thistle 3-1 on aggregate in last week’s play-off quarter-final, are hoping to return to the top flight for the first time since 2016-17 after four years in the second tier.

What the managers said

Arbroath - Dick Campbell: “I don’t want to get personal. But you look at Inverness shouting their mouth off about being a Premier League club. There were 2,200 at the (first leg) game. We will have 4,500 there tomorrow. I don’t know where all this is coming from.

“You would have to say there is far more pressure on Inverness. Inverness need to get up. We don’t need to get up. We need to earn the right to get up.”

Inverness CT - Billy Dodds: “Dick and his team have been fantastic, but I don't buy into the neutral thing. Neutral Highlanders want Inverness in the Premiership as quickly as possible. The teams are so evenly matched. We have to respect the opponent and realise what they have done this season. But we've had a right good season as well and are in a good place.”
