Ben Richards-Everton missing for Dunfermline's clash with Forfar

Champions Dunfermline will be without suspended centre-back Ben Richards-Everton against Forfar but skipper Josh Falkingham returns after a ban.

Goalkeeper Sean Murdoch and Craig Reid have both shaken off injuries and are available, with only Callum Fordyce out due to a broken leg.

Boss Allan Johnston said: "Forfar are battling hard for points and they are a side that can score goals. However we will be able to play without any kind of pressure on us and we have players who will enjoy that.

"We have worked hard to win games all season now and we do not want that ethic to disappear from our game so it will be business as usual."

Forfar's on-loan Dundee United defender Euan Spark returns after a shoulder injury however Michael Dunlop (leg) and Michael Travis (knee) miss out.

Michael Kennedy should return from a knock to play.

Manager Gary Bollan said: "Dunfermline are still very much in competitive mode. They went to Albion Rovers last weekend and kept a clean sheet before scoring a late winner so we cannot rely on them doing us any favours.

"We did well to beat Peterhead last Saturday and showed that our disappointing performance the week before at Stenhousemuir was behind us. We need another performance at that high level to pick anything up at Dunfermline."
