Morrison doubt for Arbroath

Arbroath have a fitness doubt over goalkeeper Scott Morrison ahead of their Angus Derby with forfar.

Connor Birse remains out following knee surgery but Alan Cook is available after suspension.

Gayfield player-boss Paul Sheerin said: "We lost a late goal at Stranraer and drew 1-1, however if we can add to that with a win over Forfar it will have been a good return from two tricky games.

"We are disappointed at going bottom but the best way to react to that is to win."

Forfar manager Dick Campbell is promising changes following a disappointing display against Dunfermline last week.

Campbell has Odmar Faero and Dale Hilson available again after injury to boost his options.

He said: "This will be a really tough game as it is a local derby and we are facing a side that will be fighting for their lives. We need to be up for the fight as we need to start putting a run of wins together to get us back involved in the play-offs.

"I will be making some changes to help us put in a display that will do that for us."
