Forfar will be without Michael Bolochoweckyj and Stephen Tulloch against Albion.
The central defenders are suspended, giving boss Dick Campbell a selection headache with a handful of players already unavailable.
Full-back Iain Campbell and midfielder Keith Gibson have joined long-term injury victim Jamie Bishop on the sidelines.
Mark McCulloch is expected to drop back into defence and Campbell will call on some of the club's youth team players to fill up his bench.
``It is not an ideal place to be numbers-wise but one thing I know is that spirit in my squad is good,`` said Campbell.
``Albion have turned the corner in terms of scoring goals so we need to pull together and get a win regardless of who is playing and in what positions.``
Albion will have five players missing. Goalkeeper Chris McCluskey (back), Alan Reid (knee), Michael O'Byrne (knee), Kevin Green (stomach) and Chris Boyle (hamstring) are the absentees.
Manager Todd Lumsden said: ``Despite the injuries we are going to Forfar in good spirits after a decent run in the league.
``This will be a tough game as they have done really well this season and sit just three points behind leaders Queen of the South, who have been getting a lot more attention.
``We had a decent record against Forfar last season and it would be good to start this campaign by taking something away with us from this game.``
