Today's Highland League match between Huntly and Strathspey Thistle has been postponed due to a frozen pitch.
Buckie Thistle v Deveronvale
It's derby day at Victoria Park, where Buckie host Deveronvale. Stevie Ross (groin), Sam Robertson (knee), Shaun Carroll (knee) and John McLeod (hip) are all out injured for the Jags.
Kyle Willox and Courtney Cooper are added to the Vale squad that lost at home to Rothes last weekend.
Formartine Utd v Turriff Utd
Formartine returned to winning ways last time out against Fort William, and they'll aim to continue that form against Turriff at North Lodge Park.
Turriff boss Kris Hunter will be aiming to get one over his former employers on his return to Pitmedden.
Fraserburgh v Lossiemouth
Fraserburgh take on Lossiemouth at Bellslea and they're boosted by the news of long term injury victim Ryan Christie's return to training. Cammy Buchan remains out injured and Jamie Beagrie is offshore.
Ryan Stuart is still out injured for the visitors, but is close to returning. Kevin Flett is in contention and Owen Lovelands is in the squad after joining the club on loan from Elgin City until the end of the season. Jack MacArthur, Scott Wilson and Ally Bellingham all trained this week and could also return to the squad.
Huntly P-P Strathspey Thistle
Nairn County v Keith
Nairn face Keith at Station Park and the home side have completed the signing of goalkeeper Will Counsell from Brora Rangers. Dylan Mackenzie, Callum Ednie and Max Ewan also extended their contracts with the club this week.
Jamie MacAllister, Jack Grant and Andy Smith all miss out for the visitors.
Rothes v Brora Rangers
Match of the day is at Mackessack Park where third place Rothes host league leaders Brora. Jamie Duff and Fraser Robertson remain out injured for the home side, Dale Wood and Robert Donaldson are suspended and Ally Stark will have a late fitness test. Elgin City defender Darryl McHardy has joined the club on loan until the end of the season.
Brora player boss Steven Mackay faces a selection headache with a full squad to choose from for the trip to Speyside.
Wick Academy v Forres Mechanics
Wick face Forres at Harmsworth Park and will be without Grant Steven, Marc Macgregor and Gordon McNab through injury.
Ryan Farquhar, Arron Hamilton, Callum Johnston and Martin Groat are all out injured for the visitors, while Owen Paterson is unavailable.
