Our Forfar Athletic v Edinburgh City predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - plus the latest betting odds.
Forfar Athletic prepare for this match following a 2-2 League One drawn match vs Partick Thistle.
The only player to score from Forfar Athletic was Scott Fenwick (2', 44'). Connor Murray (16') and Brian Graham (66') scored for Partick Thistle.
Forfar Athletic have not been in good attacking form in more recent games. Their goals record equals just 3 against opposition teams during their previous 6 matches. In those games, The Loons have also seen the number of goals against them total 7. That pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, however.
Edinburgh City head into the game following on from a 1-3 League Two win in the defeat of Cowdenbeath in their previous match.
For Edinburgh City, goals were scored by Liam Brown (15') and Blair Henderson (36', 60'). Harvey Swann (26') was the scorer for Cowdenbeath.

Team News: Edinburgh City
From a largely available group, there is only a single fitness worry for the Edinburgh City manager Gary Naysmith to be concerned about. Kelby Mason (Knock) won’t be in action.
It seems to us that Edinburgh City and Forfar Athletic could both well score more than once here although it’s hard to see a clear-cut winner.
Looks like a high-scoring draw might be possible, as we’re expecting it to be that close. We therefore see a very competitive encounter with a 2-2 score draw at the end of this game.
