Josh Skelly doubtful for Angus derby

Arbroath have a doubt over striker Josh Skelly for their all-Angus affair with Montrose at Gayfield.

Assistant manager Ian Campbell said: "We saw off the threat of relegation but unfortunately we have not built on that yet. We have lost our last two games, however we have played very well in them.

"What we now need to do is to play well and ensure that we win. This would be a great game to do that in as there is a good bit of local pride at stake as well as the chance to move above Montrose in the table."

Montrose have doubts over Neil Martyniuk and Adam Harwood and they could join the long-term injured duo Paul Watson (groin) and Ross McCord (knee) in missing out

Manager Paul Hegarty said: "The Rangers and Celtic game last weekend showed the passion involved in Scotland's biggest derby match. This game will not be watched by the same amount of fans, however those that go along will be just as passionate.

"Arbroath have won the last two games and it would be great to turn that around. A win would mean that we would finish the season above Arbroath and again our fans would enjoy that."
