Forfar moved above opponents Brechin with a 2-0 victory at Station Park.
On-loan striker Dale Hilson put Forfar ahead just before the break as he fired home from six yards for his third goal in as many games.
Despite the away team dominating possession they were unable to take advantage of it as the two teams largely cancelled each other out.
The same pattern continued after the break as Brechin threatened from set pieces and substitute Derek Carcary had a shot saved.
However, substitute Ross Campbell sealed the win for the home side as he coolly finished to avenge the defeat earlier in the season and claim just their second win at home all season.
