Forfar Athletic assistant Iain Campbell believes the side are looking more like themselves after their comfortable 2-0 win over Ayr.

The win ended a run of five games without victory for the Loons and Iain said the management team had seen the signs of a return to form in training, writes Scott Binnie.

He said: “We looked more like ourselves. The management are delighted, that’s us bounced back because we dropped into a lull for loads of different reasons but we’ve seen in training that we’re starting to look ourselves again.

“I thought we were up for the game, we started really well. We were on top for the first half against a good, spirited away team. We didn’t really create many chances but I felt we put our personality over the game right from the start.

“We deserved to win the game and we scored two good goals. When we go ahead we become a very hard team to beat, but all credit to Ayr though because they came at us the last 20 minutes. The onus was on Ayr to break us down but they never, they didn’t create many chances.”

Ayr United boss Mark Roberts felt the scoreline flattered the hosts.

He said: “I don’t think it was a 2-0 game for Forfar. The goal put us on the back foot.”
