Scottish Cup Second Round

Banks o' Dee v Formartine Utd
Formartine boss Kris Hunter has confirmed he will not make many changes to his side for the cup tie with Juniors Banks o' Dee, despite last weekend's disappointing defeat at home to Brora.

Brora Rangers v Clyde
Ross Tokely returns for Brora, giving player-boss Grant Munro a fully fit squad to choose from for the clash with League 2 side Clyde at Dudgeon Park.

Bonnyrigg Rose v Cove Rangers
Highland League champions Cove Rangers travel to face Junior side Bonnyrigg Rose, who defeated Turriff United in a replay in the first round. Murray McCulloch and Sam Burnett are the only absentees for Cove.

Buckie Thistle v Gretna 2008

Team news for Saturday 15th October

Buckie Thistle v Fraserburgh
League leaders Buckie will hope to return to winning ways at home to Fraserburgh, after losing their unbeaten record at Banks o' Dee in midweek. Boss Graeme Stewart is likely to restore the players rested for the Aberdeenshire Shield defeat to the starting line-up tomorrow.

The Broch have several players missing for the trip to Victoria Park, with Ryan Cowie, Dean Cowie, Ryan Christie, Aidan Combe, Marc Lawrence and Bryan Hay all injured. Michael Rae faces a late fitness test, while Gary Harris is suspended.

Clach v Inverurie Locos
Clach are likely to have a similar squad to the one who drew with Turriff in midweek for the visit of Inverurie Locos to Grant Street. The home side will be without Ryan Mackintosh, who is away on holiday.

Locos will include recent loan signing from Dundee United, goalkeeper Ryan Booth, in their squad for the trip to Inverness. The 18-year-old has signed until the end of the year and will provide competition for current custodian Scott Mathieson. 

Cove Rangers v Wick Academy
Cove have won seven of their last eight matches and will hope to continue that excellent form against Wick at Harlaw Park. The hosts are missing Murray McCulloch and Sam Burnett.

Wick will be without Sean McCarthy, Sam Mackay, Alan Farquhar, Ross Allan and Andrew Hardwick. Steven Anderson could also miss out as the visitors look to bounce back from their defeat to Fraserburgh last time out.
