Celtic, Hibernian and Livingston have already clinched titles this season but it’s still all to play for at the top of Ladbrokes League 2.

Local rivals Forfar Athletic and Arbroath are separated by just a single point with three games remaining and it's a race that looks like going all the way to the final day on May 6.

Forfar Athletic
Position: 1st
Points 60, Goal difference +19

Manager: Gary Bollan

Last five form: DLWDL

Still to play: Clyde (H), Cowdenbeath (A), Annan Athletic (H)

Trivia: Forfar are the joint top scorers in League 2, along with Elgin, on 63 goals. The Loons have won most games in the division – seven at home and 10 away – but their recent form has been disappointing with only one victory in 10 matches. They lost 1-0 at Montrose on Saturday.

Top league scorer: Josh Peters (11)

Last season: 10th in Ladbrokes League 1 (relegated)

Arbroath 
Position: 2nd
Points: 59, Goal difference +25

Manager: Dick Campbell

Last five form: WLWDL

Still to play: Cowdenbeath (A), Elgin City (H), Stirling Albion (A)

Trivia: Arbroath are unbeaten away from home in the league since September and have the best defensive record in League 2. The Red Lichties have suffered fewest defeats in the division but have drawn most games. Their last match was a 1-0 home defeat to Edinburgh City.

Top league scorer: Steven Doris (11)

Last season: 9th in Ladbrokes League 2
