Forfar will have to deal better with teams who sit in against them after coming up against a Montrose brick wall last weekend.
Forfar are expecting today’s Angus derby to be just as tough as the one they narrowly lost seven days ago.
The fact that they would be the first League One club to beat Arbroath this season isn’t in Forfar manager Jim Weir’s thoughts ahead of today’s Angus derby.
Arbroath’s hectic schedule of six games in 18 days starts with the long trip to Stranraer tonight.
Montrose manager Stewart Petrie knows what Stenhousemuir manager Brown Ferguson’s team-talk will be ahead of the game between the two sides this afternoon.
Forfar are determined to make sure local rivals Arbroath don’t complete a clean sweep in this season’s Angus derbies, according to manager Jim Weir.
There should be no problem for Jim Weir getting his players focused or motivated for the rest of September, with three Angus derbies in a row coming up.
Consistency of selection is bringing consistency of form and results, according to Forfar boss Jim Weir.
Montrose manager Stewart Petrie is looking for more of the same from his players when the Gable Endies host Forfar this afternoon.
Like every other manager on League One, Jim Weir has a January transfer wish list.
