Kevin McBride and Donald Jennow in charge as Eddie Wolecki Black recovers

Airdrie will have coaches Kevin McBride and Donald Jennow in charge for the visit of Forfar after manager Eddie Wolecki Black suffered a stroke during the half-time interval of Saturday's game with Cowdenbeath.

David Cox is available for the Diamonds again after a three-game suspension to give the hosts a full squad to choose from.

Goalkeeper Neil Parry said: "We had to show a great deal of focus to get through the second half at the weekend and we will need that focus again against Forfar.

"It would be great to keep winning and keep ourselves in the top four whilst the boss recovers."

Forfar welcome back Gareth Rodger from suspension, and Steven Craig is over the illness bug that saw him substituted early during Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Stranraer.

Loons boss Gary Bollan is returning to his former club for the first time and he said: "I am looking to go back to my former club, however it will be a bit subdued after the weekend's events.

"We have the chance to win and go above Cowdenbeath and into eighth place. Hopefully we can take it but we will have to defend better than we did at Stair Park and also be more ruthless in front of goal to do so."
