Stenhousemuir V Forfar at Ochilview Park : Match Preview

Stenhousemuir V Forfar - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Warriors duo out

Stenhousemuir will be without Kris Faulds and John Gemmell when they welcome Forfar to Ochilview.


On-loan Falkirk midfielder Faulds is sidelined by a head injury and striker Gemmell has a groin problem.


The Warriors are under the control of interim manager Brown Ferguson for the last time as new boss Scott Booth starts on Monday.


Ferguson said: "It is always tough when you play Forfar and I am sure that this one will be no different.


"We showed against Rangers last Saturday and against Airdrie in midweek by hitting back late to get draws that the spirit here is good. We will show that again against Forfar but hopefully get a win this time."


Forfar skipper Marc McCulloch is closing in on a comeback after six months out with a knee injury but the game has come too soon for the 38-year-old.


Martyn Fotheringham is also struggling to face the Warriors due to illness.


Manager Dick Campbell said: "We won last week against Arbroath as we stood up strong when we were under pressure late in the game. We will need the same approach against Stenhousemuir as, like us, they need a win to get back into the play-off chase.


"If we win we go above them in the table so we would be better placed to challenge for the play-offs."
