Andrews set for Loons return

Forfar will look to climb further away from the foot of the table by seeing off visitors Stranraer and they will restore Marvin Andrews to their defence against the Blues as Stuart Malcolm has picked up a groin injury.

The Loons are also missing Derek Soutar (shoulder), Martyn Fotheringham (ankle) and Keith Gibson (knee), however Neil McCabe is available again after a knock.

Station Park manager Dick Campbell said: "Last Saturday was a terrific day for us as we deservedly beat Dunfermline 4-0. We now need to build on that and defeat Stranraer to start heading closer to where we should be in this league."

Stranraer are only missing defender Lloyd Kinnaird who is struggling with a back problem as they look to remain above their hosts in the table.

Stair Park manager Stephen Aitken said: "When we defeated Arbroath 3-2 last weekend our first 45 minute performance was the best I have seen from a Stranraer team in years.

"We shaded a bit after half time however if we can play as well as we did when we raced to a 3-0 lead then we have a real chance at Forfar.

"They are strong at home and full of confidence after beating Dunfermline but if we play like we can then we can win."
