Not a great game but a spectacular goal by Russell Duncan to savour.
Stuart Golabek was taken to hospital for a check-up after a face knock and his replacement, Richard Hastings, later also went off injured.
Mark Brown tipped over a shot from Forfar’s David McClune before Duncan made it 1-0 with a 30 yard shot into the top corner.
Forfar ‘keeper Michael Brown touched over a fierce shot from trialist Adriano Pellegrino. David Dunn equalised just after the break with a header after a shot from Paul Shields was only partly cleared.
In 70 minutes Forfar substitute Mathu King shot just wide from 18 yards.
