Team News: Brora Rangers
Brora Rangers manager Steven Mackay doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash with a completely healthy group available for selection.
Team News: Forfar Athletic
Forfar boss Gary Irvine has some current player fitness concerns. Stefan McCluskey (Shoulder Injury), Darren Whyte (Knock) and Steven Anderson (Achilles tendon rupture) can’t be considered.
We feel that in this game, Brora Rangers will likely be able to find the back of the net against this Forfar Athletic lineup, although one goal might not be enough to prevent defeat.
Therefore, we’re predicting a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 advantage for Forfar Athletic when the referee blows the final whistle. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
