Dunfermline without Moore

Play-off bound Dunfermline are without on-loan Dundee United striker Jordan Moore against visitors Forfar after it was announced that he is fighting melanoma skin cancer.


Lawrence Shankland should shake off a groin injury picked up in training to feature and Ryan Thomson is available again however Ryan Wallace remains out with a leg knock.


Manager Jim Jefferies said: "We have reached the objective we set ourselves for the league season which was to reach the play-offs however we still want to secure second place.


"Forfar will make it difficult as they have plenty to play for and there are so many Dunfermline connections in their playing and management staff."


A former Par in Forfar's ranks, Iain Campbell, misses out through suspension with another ex-East End Park favourite Mark McCulloch out with a knee injury.


Odmar Faero is also absent due to a knee problem however captain Gavin Swankie could start after a calf injury.


Manager Dick Campbell said: "We have a tough run for a play-off place starting against Dunfermline but we are up for the challenge. We are looking to bounce back after a defeat and they are looking to do the same after two defeats so it should be an open game.


"We defeated Dunfermline earlier in the season so we can go there with confidence."
