Match Preview









Rovers duo return

Albion Rovers welcome back Kevin Green and Peter Innes from suspension against Forfar.

However, Barry Russell is banned while Mick O'Byrne (ankle) and Tony Stevenson (knee) are out injured.

Matthew McGinley will be in goal as Ryan Scully is struggling with a thigh injury.

Manager Todd Lumsden said: "We are still fighting for our lives and I am sure we will remain like that until the end of the season. We were terrific against East Fife in midweek and should have been more than one up before they scored just before half-time.

"Forfar will be difficult opponents but we can get a result."

Forfar have defender Michael Bolochoweckyj suspended as they look to complete a clean sweep of victories over Rovers.

The Station Park side will also be missing Odmar Faero who is on international duty but Ross Campbell returns to the squad after illness.

Manager Dick Campbell said: "My players battled back from two goals down to get a draw last week against Stenhousemuir so apart from having Odmar missing now I am not planning too many changes.

"We have shown signs recently that we are clicking into a higher gear which is good timing as we are still in there fighting for a play-off place.

"I want to see more evidence of that at Albion Rovers especially as they will be battling for every ball."
