Faero boost for Fofar
Forfar welcome back Odmar Faero from international duty as they look to build on their midweek success at Ayr by seeing off neighbours Brechin.
Faero's return from his exploits with the Faroe Islands gives manager Dick Campbell a full squad to choose from as he looks to take his side on a late charge to get into the play-offs.
Campbell said: "We have made reaching a play-off place difficult but all we can do is win games and see where we end up.
"We played well at Ayr and scored three goals so I am not planning many changes for what is always a difficult derby match."
Brechin will have to change their defence at Station Park as Paul McLean is banned while Jonny Brown, Ewan Moyes (both ankle), Garry Kenneth and Derek Carcary (both hamstring) miss out due to injury.
Stephen Robb is also an injury doubt, however Graham Hay returns after suspension and Alan Trouten is in line to start for the first time in over two months.
Manager Ray McKinnon said: "We are up against things a bit but we will not lie down.
"One thing we have to do is to defend better and if do that then we can win."
