McQuade adds to Fife problems
Bottom-of-the-table East Fife face Forfar without striker Paul McQuade.
McQuade is suffering from a thigh strain and his absence provides a headache for manager John Robertson, who is already sweating over the fitness of Craig Johnstone and Lloyd Young.
Robertson has urged his players to find a ruthless streak as they look to move from the foot of the Division Two table.
He said: "We have simply got to be more ruthless as we have dropped points in games that we should have won or at the very least drawn.
"I am not sure if it is a confidence issue with the players in that they start getting nervous about winning.
"But we have worked with them and hopefully we can get ahead against Forfar and score a second to kill them off."
Forfar boss Dick Campbell will have to do without a trio of players.
Craig Wilson, Greg Ross and Stephen Tulloch will all miss the trip, although utility man Iain Campbell could well return following an ankle injury to offset those losses.
Campbell said: "I was not at all happy with the result last weekend (when they were beaten 2-0 at home by Dumbarton) and I let the players know it at training.
"We looked like we were going to go on a decent run of results and they flopped badly so I am looking for much, much better against John Robertson's side.
"They are a better side than their league position indicates so we need to be up for it."
Wallace settles seven-goal thriller
Ryan Wallace struck seven minutes from time to give East Fife a thrilling 4-3 victory over Forfar.
John Ovenstone put the hosts in front after 15 minutes with a header from close range but Kevin Byers levelled for the visitors four minutes later with a header of his own.
David Muir restored the home side's lead after 32 minutes with a right-foot finish from just outside the penalty area, but Ovenstone put through his own goal eight minutes later.
Robert Ogleby ensured the home side were back in front just before the break when he converted Wallace's cross from 12 yards out.
But Forfar were back on level terms eight minutes into the second half when Joe Shaughnessy nodded in Nicky Low's corner.
The game swayed back in favour of the Fifers when the visitors had Adam McHugh sent off for a professional foul on Ogleby 15 minutes from time.
And McHugh's dismissal proved to be costly when Ogleby set up Wallace, who fired home from 12 yards with a neat right-foot finish.
