Manager Dick Campbell was bitterly disappointed with his side’s performance in the 2-0 loss at Morton.
And the League One Manager of the Month for October believes the Greenock outfit were worthy winners.
He said: “I was extremely disappointed with the Morton game. Again, we’ve created this situation where we’re top of the league and everybody’s going to be up for you.
“But first and foremost you have to be up for the games yourself.
“While we’ve had the best chances, the easiest chances fell to Forfar, there’s no doubt that from the start of the game to the end, Morton deserved to win the game.
“They were first to every ball, we couldn’t get a stamp on the game.
“Jim Paterson getting sent off, Mark Baxter’s not been playing and Derek Young being out, these things take their toll because they’re quality players.
“That’s absolutely contributed to the change in form.
