Forfar out to continue winning run against rivals Montrose

Forfar boss Gary Bollan has a full squad to choose from as he looks to guide his side to a club-record eighth successive league win by defeating neighbours Montrose.

"This game is worth the same as every other game this season, and that is three points," said Bollan. "I am only focusing on beating Montrose in what will be a hard-fought local derby, as opposed to records.

"They have an experienced side with a good number of former Forfar players who will be out to make life difficult for us, so we have to play well to win."

Montrose have Terry Masson back after a ban but Andy Steeves is a major doubt with a knee injury. Chris Hegarty remains out with an ankle problem.

Montrose boss Paul Hegarty said: "To pick up 21 points from seven games is a terrific achievement by Forfar, but it would be nice to end their run especially if we can get a win.

"We have to look to go there and be competitive from the first whistle, and I am sure we will be as it is a derby game and we have a number of players returning to a former club."
