Forfar will not be going into today’s decisive play-off final second leg at Peterhead with a ‘what we have, we hold’ mentality.
The Loons have a slender one-goal lead, thanks to a 2-1 comeback victory at Station Park on Wednesday night.
And Gary Bollan believes that trying to protect their advantage is not the way to go.
It will be a positive approach from the League Two runners-up which will hopefully get the reward the Angus club are hoping for.
Bollan said: “We have got our noses in front but we face a huge 90 minutes at Peterhead.
“They are a strong side but we have the ability to go to Balmoor and win.
“I am not going to go there and send Forfar out to defend a one-goal lead. We do not play like that and changing everything around could leave us vulnerable.”
Bollan has prioritised a good start this afternoon – something he didn’t get in the first leg.
“It took us 20 minutes to settle into the first game and we found ourselves a goal down,” he said. “We could have lost another one, however after we settled there was not much between us.
“Jim Lister and David Cox both went close before half-time and after the break we were even better when Eddie Malone played more in a midfield role.
“The sending off of their player just after half-time gave us a bit more space and we took advantage of that.
“Martyn Fotheringham scored a great goal and we grabbed the second with a great cross and finish from Michael Travis.”
In the end, Forfar could have been heading north with an even bigger advantage.
He added: “We had chances after that through David and Josh Peters and it would have been great to have had an even bigger lead. However they came and went with the tie still in the balance.
“It really is all to play for.”
Lister has been passed fit to play, however Gavin Swankie is a major doubt after being injured on Wednesday night.
Meanwhile, Peterhead manager Jim McInally has told his players to do their talking on the pitch as they look to preserve their League One status.
The Blue Toon players are nursing grievances from midweek – both at a crucial refereeing decision that went against them and perceived overly exuberant post-match Forfar celebrations – and McInally has challenged them to turn their anger into a victory.
He explained: “We had Michael McMullin sent off early in the second half for simulation when we were winning.
“We do not believe that it was a dive and we should have had a penalty with the chance to go two ahead.
“The fact that Forfar scored twice against our 10 men to win the game emphasises the importance of that decision.
“The players were going on about it afterwards and I told them not to moan about it as it has gone now.
“They were also annoyed at the noise of the Forfar players celebrating and I told them the best way to sort that is to win this second leg.
“They have it in their power to do something positive about these negatives.”
“If we play like we did with 11 men then we have a real chance.
Whilst McMullin is available, star striker Rory McAllister is suspended.
McInally added: “The players also have the chance to show that they are not a one man team.”
Craig Reid is out injured with Jamie Stevenson and Jordan Brown both rated as doubts.
