Tulloch out of Fifers clash

Forfar are without defender Stephen Tulloch through suspension as they host an East Fife side that will climb above the Loons in the race for a play-off spot with a win.

Keith Gibson remains out with a long term injury, however Station Park manager Dick Campbell is tempted to give centre back Odmar Faeroe his first start in over two months after a knee injury in a bid to stiffen up his defence.

Campbell said: "I was disappointed with the boys last week at Alloa as we gave away soft goals and I will make changes as a result.

"Odmar has been back in training and it would be a gamble but we need to toughen up in defence and he would help us do that."

East Fife could have defender Darren McCormack available after he shrugged off a knee knock.

The New Bayview side are again without the injured quartet of Michael Brown, Darren Smith, Gareth Wardlaw.

Brown said: "We had a good win over Stenhousemuir last week in atrocious conditions. We were two goals up and got pegged back but the boys showed a great spirit to get the winner.

"We need to show that spirit again as Forfar are a very strong side. The players have been fantastic since I came in and hopefully we can continue our improvement by winning at Station Park."
