Match Preview

Arbroath boosted by Malcolm return Arbroath captain Stuart Malcolm returns from suspension as the Red Lichties look to keep up their chase of leaders Cowdenbeath by seeing off Forfar at Gayfield. Midfielder Lee Sibanda is a doubt after pick up a knock against Cowdenbeath at the weekend and player-manager Paul Sheerin is again without goalkeeper Michael White and striker Jordan Elfverson through injury. Sheerin is looking for a repeat of the recent 4-2 success his men had against the Loons. He said: "We put on a good display at Station Park and got a deserved win. We need to match that display to win again, as three points not only keep pushing us towards securing a play-off place, they keep pressure on Cowdenbeath at the top." Forfar defender Jamie Bishop will be sidelined by a knee injury once again. Michael Bolochoweckyj missed the 4-0 defeat to East Fife at the weekend and he is a doubt for manager Dick Campbell. The Station Park boss is looking for his men to show what they are capable of and he said: "We had great wins against Stenhousemuir and Cowdenbeath last month so we are capable of winning this one. "Unfortunately we never got on a roll with further wins and we still find ourselves in eighth place which is much lower than we should be. "Arbroath played really well at our place but we can win this game."

Match Report

Doris delight for Red Lichties Steven Doris' hat-trick ensured Arbroath kept the pressure on Second Division leaders Cowdenbeath by easing to a 4-1 win over Forfar. The night got off to an inauspicious start for the Red Lichties as Forfar took a 13th-minute lead when Bradley Coyne drove into the top corner from the edge of the area. Arbroath needed just seven minutes to level, though, as Collin Samuel latched on to Craig Wedderburn's pass to fire past Marc McCallum. The points were then effectively won in the space of two minutes as Doris converted Samuel's pass in the 43rd minute and 60 seconds later Doris netted from close range to double the advantage. The Loons did make some effort to stage a comeback after the interval, with Christopher Templeman heading straight at Tim Hill from inside the six-yard box and Coyne missing a similarly gilt-edged chance when he headed over soon after. The icing was put on the cake with 19 minutes remaining as Doris completed his treble by converting Gavin Swankie's cross.
