Thomson thwarts Forfar comeback

Substitute Iain Thomson's goal gave Stenhousemuir a 3-2 victory at Forfar after the hosts had initially fought back from two down.

The Warriors should have gone ahead after nine minutes through Stewart Kean but his left-footed volley struck the post.

They did lead 13 minutes later when Brown Ferguson nodded in Paul McHale's cross and they doubled their advantage three minutes later when Kean prodded home from close range.

The hosts battled back and Christopher Templeman headed Iain Campbell's cross into the net from six yards in the 55th minute to give them hope. They were back on level terms just two minutes later when David Mowat's rasping drive beat Chris McCluskey from the edge of the box.

But Thomson ensured Stenhousemuir had the last laugh, converting Kean's cross in the 62nd minute.

McHugh poised for Loons bow

Forfar look set to give a debut to goalkeeper Adam McHugh against Stenhousemuir at Station Park after the youngster was signed on loan from St Mirren.

Everyone in the Loons squad is available to manager Dick Campbell, who remains upbeat despite having only secured one point from his side's opening two league games.

Campbell said: "We are playing well so there is not much to be unhappy about. If we keep doing what we are doing we will get the breaks that have been going against us and then results will come. I am sure of that.

"Stenhousemuir have a very experienced squad but, as I have been telling my players all week, it is more about what we do than anything else."

Stenhousemuir welcome fit-again goalkeeper Ally Brown and centre-back Ross McMillan into their squad for the match.

The Warriors have also added striker Shaun Fraser on loan from Partick, leaving young attacking midfielder Grant Plenderleith as their only absentee as he continues to serve a suspension picked up while on loan at Bo'ness Juniors last season.

The Ochilview men are looking to add to their victory over Arbroath last week by taking full points from their hosts.

Assistant manager Kevin McGoldrick said: "We were worthy winners last weekend and if we can take that form into this game we will do okay.

"Forfar will be tough opponents and no doubt Dick Campbell will have them fired up after losing last Saturday."
