No pals on Station Park platformFriday, 20th Feb 2015
Lewis Spence:- "Forfar can be a bogey team for us up there.
"I have played against Forfar twice this season. We got beat up there 2-0, it wasn't a great result in only the second game of the season. We missed a penalty in the 0-0 draw at East End Park.
"It is going to be a tough game, it is on Astro as well but we have been training on Astro. We are going up there to get three points and continue this run. I am looking forward to it."
After wins over Ayr United and Stenhousemuir, albeit due to a last minute, goal, the 19 year old midfielder feels that the team has been given a boost:-
"It is better than two defeats. We did need that last minute goal but the draw would not have been good enough. Barra scored it and overall we did deserve it. We are all confident now, training has been lively and we will be going into that game for three points."
After John Potter has brought in Lewis Allan on top of the five previous signings - Jim Paterson, Andy Barrowman, Kyle McAusland, David Hopkirk and Paul George - there is a big pool of players now fighting for a starting place. Lewis continued:-
"The signings that the manager has made will help us push on to the end of the season and give us that extra edge. We have a game in hand and a lot of games coming up so everybody will be getting used. Competition is healthy for the team."
Lewis was ever present in the team until mid November when he picked up an injury. His form dipped and had a couple of months where he admits that he was not playing to his best.
"I feel that I am getting back to my best now and I try to do my best every week. I just want to keep playing and do well for the gaffer."
The midfield dual on Saturday could see Lewis pitched in against former Par Stephen Husband. Hubby is known to him but there will be no friendship on the park insists Lewis:-
"I don't keep in touch with him. He is a nice boy, sound but when it comes to three o' clock on Saturday he will not be a pal.
"Forfar can be a bogey team for us up there. We are going out to win the three points and so will they. On form they got beat last week at Airdrie and we won so there may be a mental boost as well. I just hope that I am playing!"
