Forfar moved above neighbours Brechin with a derby victory at Station Park.

On-loan striker Dale Hilson put Forfar ahead before the break from six yards for his third goal in three games.

Despite the away team dominating possession, they were unable to take advantage as the two teams largely cancelled each other out.

However, sub Ross Campbell sealed the win with a cool finish to avenge the defeat earlier in the season and claim Forfar's second win at home.
