Forfar lose their Swankie
Bottom-of-the-table Forfar will be without Gavin Swankie when Dunfermline visit Station Park after the striker was sent off in the 3-0 defeat to Arbroath last weekend.
The Loons will also be missing the injured Derek Soutar (shoulder), Keith Gibson (knee), Martyn Fotheringham (ankle) and Mark McCulloch (knee), with manager Dick Campbell asking his side to banish thoughts of a "bizarre day" from their memories.
Campbell explained: "We played Dunfermline in the promotion play-offs last season and lost 6-1 in extra time after having three players sent off. It would be best described as a bizarre day.
"We need to get over that and concentrate only on winning this one."
Dunfermline defender Alex Whittle is doubtful, but manager Jim Jefferies is confident the full-back will be able to take his place in a fully-fit and suspension-free squad.
The Pars recorded their best win of the season last Saturday when they defeated Ayr 5-1 and it is a case of more of the same for Jefferies.
The East End Park boss said: "That was a really good display, which was full of some great passing moves.
"Forfar hit us hard on our last visit up there when they won 3-1, but we have the opportunity to show that we have learned from that game."
