Forfar Athletic v Stranraer Preview

Stranraer badgeSPFL LEAGUE ONE:


(Saturday, October 25: Station Park, 3pm)

Stevie Aitken hopes Stranraer can upset the leaders tomorrow and extend their League One unbeaten record to six matches.
The Blues travel to Angus for the second time in a week and face table-topping Forfar following last Saturday's 2-1 triumph at Brechin City.
Goals from Frank McKeown and Sean Winter earned the Blues all three points at Glebe Park in the team's first match since the Petrofac Training Cup defeat on penalties to Livingston.
And Aitken knows a fourth win in six games could see his side climb into the promotion play-off zone.
The manager said: "The most important thing for us last weekend was picking up the three points. That's what mattered.
"Our players gave everything in the cup tie with Livingston and we were proud of how they performed.
"Brechin are a good side, and difficult opposition away from home, but we worked really hard and got our reward even though we have probably played better.
"We have got ourselves into a good position. We've been in good form over the past six weeks and Saturday marks the beginning of a big week for us."
Dick Campbell's Loons are a point clear at the top of the table and Aitken is expecting a tough 90 minutes.
"They have enjoyed an excellent start to the season," added the boss who is without Craig Pettigrew and Scott Robertson. "Forfar have a squad full of experienced players but hopefully we can go up there and get a result."
