The Angus club have been racking up the miles over the past fortnight, a Scottish Cup trip to Formartine followed up by a journey to Stranraer.

Despite the distances, the journeys were well worth it with Forfar returning with victories from both games.

At the weekend goals Matthew Aitken, Craig Thomson and Jamie Ness sealed a 3-2 victory.

It was a win which maintains Forfar’s excellent run of recent form and sets them up nicely for this weekend’s home tie against Elgin City.

Irvine says it’ll be good to be back in front of Forfar’s fans again.

“First of all, I’d like to thank the supporters who made the journey to support the lads (against Stranraer),” he told the club’s website.

"It’s a long trip so we did appreciate that backing.

"We are all looking forward to getting back to Station Park for the match against Elgin.

"It will be another tough match but it’s always good to get back home, especially on the back of two long trips which require a lot of off the field preparation with buses, meals for the players and the all the logistics for the club.

"It feels like we’ve not seen enough of our home supporters this season.

"We will be working hard to keep the winning momentum going and the boys will keep fighting for the three points.

"To do that at home in front of our fans, well there’s nothing better and when you are winning Saturday cannot come soon enough.”
