As there is no GUI you're  less likely to get a virus as there is nothing to really latch on to.Forefront Client Security is supported in core servers. Personally i feel core servers doesn't required AV.

You can use McAfee Stinger to scan for a small sub-set of threats on your Server Core.
To be honest you could get away with not having one installed.
