Annan at full strength for Forfar test

Annan host League 2 leaders Forfar and one-time Loons midfielder Willie Robertson has been passed fit.

His inclusion gives Galabank boss Jim Chapman a full squad to choose from for the first time this season.

Chapman said: "The international break came at a good time as it allowed Willie and other players rest and recovery time after a busy start to the season.

"We are in the unusual position of having everyone available with is great news ahead of meeting a Forfar side that have started the season so positively.

"They are setting the standard in the league just now and it is up to us to match it."

Forfar have Jim Lister and Allan Smith available after knocks to put manager Gary Bollan in the same position as his rival Chapman, with the Station Park manager determined that his side continue to improve.

Bollan said: "We defeat a Championship side last weekend and that was a terrific result especially as we went a goal behind early on. We again showed that we are a good side going forward however we are also showing signs of being better defensively which I have been asking us to be.

"We will need to show improvement in that areas again as Annan are always a strong side at home."
