Campbell wary of Stranraer
Forfar miss only the long-term injured Jamie Bishop as they look to pick up their first league win of the season when Stranraer visit.
Manager Dick Campbell is wary of the Stair Park team and said: "Stranraer have a real spirit about them which comes from a lot of people writing off their chances of staying in this division.
"I had them watched last week and the report I got back was that they will be very dangerous opponents due to that spirit. We will need to match that to pick up the three points.
"We were unlucky at Arbroath in midweek when we lost in the Ramsdens Cup but if we can attack Stranraer like we attacked in the first half at Gayfield then we will do okay."
Stranraer include new striker signing Max Wright in their pool as they head to Station Park.
Defender David MacGregor is the only absentee from the travelling party due to a knee injury.
After losing 8-0 to Livingston a fortnight ago, Stranraer regained some pride with a 1-1 draw against Arbroath last Saturday.
Manager Keith Knox said: "I was really pleased with the response from the players.
"They probably deserved more than a point from that game but if we can show the same level of togetherness in this game that we did then we could well pick up the three points in this one."
