Match Preview

Albion Rovers will be without defender Mick O'Byrne through suspension as they face Forfar looking to complete a hat-trick of wins over the Station Park side this season. Manager Paul Martin continues to be absent through illness. Martin's assistant Todd Lumsden said: "We have had good displays against Forfar already this season and a third one would be a great lift to everyone at the club. "They will be smarting from losing to us twice, where they are in the league and also from losing to Arbroath in midweek so we need to be ready to face a highly motivated side. "We need to get points on board and to start winning again. In this game the first goal could be vital." Forfar Athletic have a number of injury doubts as they head to Coatbridge. Michael Bolochoweckyj, Martin Fotheringham and Barry Sellars all face fitness tests. Defender Jamie Bishop remains out and Station Park assistant manager Ian Campbell said: "There are a couple of other guys that were the feeling the after effects of the midweek game at Arbroath so we will delay naming the team until close to kick-off time." Campbell added: "This is a huge game as there is a lot of pressure on both sides to get a win and move away from the foot of the table. "You need players to stand up to that pressure and then go and win the game. Hopefully we have players that can do that."

Match Report

Love saves the day for Wee Rovers Robert Love rescued a point for Albion as they drew 2-2 with relegation rivals Forfar at Cliftonhill. Dale Hilson put Forfar ahead inside two minutes when he struck a spectacular effort into the top-left hand corner from Christopher Templeman's header, but the hosts levelled three minutes later. Jordan Halsman crossed from the right-hand side and John Gemmell connected to send a header into the roof of the net from around the penalty spot. Albion goalkeeper Christopher Fahey parried Bradley Coyne's shot in the 16th minute before the visitors regained the lead six minutes later. Greg Ross found space on the right wing to cross for Templeman, who volleyed left-footed into the bottom corner from six yards. The home side went in search of a second equaliser and Love levelled matters 12 minutes from time with right-footed strike from the edge of the area.
