Templeman helps Forfar to victory

Chris Templeman took his tally to five for the season as Forfar won their third game on the bounce with a 4-2 away win at Stirling.

After 33 minutes Joe Shaughnessy gave Forfar the lead, heading Nicky Low's corner into the bottom left corner from six yards.

Stirling equalised just before the break with a Scott Davieson penalty after Joshua Flood had fouled Greg Ross.

Templeman scored on the hour to put Forfar back in front, turning in a Martyn Fotheringham cross.

In the 75th minute it was 3-1 when Low hammered in a shot from the edge of the box.

Two minutes later, Forfar scored a fourth. Templeman netting his second by smashing the ball home from 12 yards.

Darren Smith grabbed a consolation after 82 minutes, placing a shot into the bottom left corner.

Duo ruled out for Stirling

Stirling goalkeeper Callum Reidford (knee) and former Kilmarnock defender Shaun Dillon (hamstring) will miss out against Forfar.

Meanwhile, Midfielder Daly McSorley is also a doubt because of an ankle problem.

Boss Jocky Scott is looking for his men to get back to winning ways after two draws and a defeat in their last three outings.

He said: "We battled back well for a point against Stenhousemuir last weekend but, in my opinion, it was a game that we did not deserve to be behind in.

"This should be a good game against Forfar as they look to play football and so do we and I am targeting three points from it."

Forfar have added Aberdeen youngster Jordan Brown to their squad ahead of their trip.

Brown has signed on a loan deal and will play against Stirling as Dick Campbell's men look to make it three wins in a row.

Forfar, though, will have to do it without defender Iain Campbell, who remains sidelined with an ankle injury. However, his brother, striker Ross, is available again after a shoulder complaint.

Assistant manager Ian Campbell said: "We are pleased to have added Jordan to the squad and he is joining us at a good time.

"We have been more like ourselves in the last couple of games and are beginning to put points on board and climb up the table.

"It would be great to add another three at Stirling although Jocky Scott is a wily manager and will have his own plans to win the game."
