Dundee United got their pre-season underway with a 1-1 draw against East Fife.
Dundee United’s new Argentinian Adrian Sporle believes the best form of defence is attack.
East Fife’s season draws to a close with the visit of Forfar and Methil manager Darren Young is disappointed that the meeting is not a prelude to the promotion play-offs for his side.
The kudos of finishing second in League One is all the incentive Forfar need against East Fife this afternoon, according to their manager Jim Weir.
East Fife manager Darren Young has grown increasingly annoyed as the Methil men’s push for promotion via the play-offs has turned into a chase to catch fourth-placed Montrose.
Montrose boss Stewart Petrie looking for players to secure safety – and edge into promotion play-off spot
Montrose boss Stewart Petrie’s glass is edging closer to being more half full than half empty – but he insists he is still looking for his players to secure their League 1 safety this afternoon at East Fife.
Brechin boss Barry Smith is hoping the core of experienced players he added in January will help negotiate a hectic schedule of five games in just 14 days and secure the points to pull them out of the League 1 drop zone.
Arbroath boss Dick Campbell is determined there will be no triple whammy at Gayfield today as his team look to get back to winning ways against East Fife.
The bigger the gap the better is Jim Weir’s mantra as Forfar face up to one of their play-off rivals at Station Park this afternoon.
