Captain missing for Loons

Forfar will be without skipper Mark McCulloch against Stenhousemuir at Station Park due to a knee injury.

Stuart Malcolm is clear to play as the suspension for his dismissal against Dundee in midweek is to be served in next season's Scottish League Cup.

Everyone else is available to manager Dick Campbell with the Loons boss set to ring the changes.

"We had a really tough two hours at Dens Park and I will need to freshen things up as a result," he explained.

"We have been playing well this season and deserve to have more than the one point that we have. It is time to change that."

Stenhousemuir welcome back the experienced David Rowson after injury as they head to Forfar looking to keep scoring at one end but defend better at the other.

A hamstring injury keeps Ross Brash out and an ankle problem means that Bryan Hodge remains out as well.

"We score goals for fun but defensively we need to get better as you cannot carry on losing 5-4," manager Martyn Corrigan said.

"We have had 4 wins out of 6 games but we could have had six if we defended better.

"Forfar a strong side with a lot of height in their ranks and we need to handle that."
