Forfar boss Stuart Malcolm is delighted to have the chance to go four games unbeaten when Dumbarton visit Station Park today.
However, the Loons gaffer still feels his team are “not the finished article.”
Malcolm has come in and steadied the ship, so much so that his players have drawn away to Raith, beaten Peterhead at home and then grabbed another point on the road against Clyde last Saturday.
Steady improvement was Malcolm’s goal when he took over from previous gaffer Jim Weir just a month or so ago.
The plan was to build a solid defensive base and Forfar have conceded just once during that unbeaten run.
Malcolm said: “Absolutely, I am pleased with how things have gone over these last three matches.
“The boys have been great and they have done everything that we have asked of them.
“The priority when I took the job was to make the team harder to play against.
“Once that was done, we could then go and create and be more attacking,” added Malcolm.
“We are not the finished article yet but we are making progress.
“It is good that we face Dumbarton next because we played them recently in the Scottish Cup and lost so this will provide us with a good marker and tell us how far we have come in these past few weeks.”
Forfar will still be without injured midfielder Jordan Kirkpatrick for the visit of the Sons.
