Team news for Saturday 18th February

Highland League Cup First Round

Deveronvale v Nairn County
Deveronvale and Nairn try again after last weekend's Highland League Cup tie at Princess Royal Park was postponed. Chris Blackhall, Dan Smith, Scott Fraser and Kevin Adams all miss out for the home side.

Nairn have Jack Maclean available for this cup tie, with his suspension only applying to league matches. Gary Kerr serves a one-match ban, while Paul Macleod should be fit after picking up a knock against Cove last time out.

Highland League

Clach v Huntly

Clach are in decent form as they push for a top-half finish, putting six past Fort William in the cup in midweek. Martin Callum and Matty Grant miss the visit of Huntly through injury and Stuart Leslie is offshore. Ryan Mackintosh is also unavailable, while the club are hopeful of bringing James Ross in on loan in time to feature tomorrow.

Huntly were on the receiving end of champions Cove's devastating return to goalscoring form on Wednesday night, as Co-Managers Andy Roddie and Tommy Wilson suffered their first defeat since taking over in December. The club have confirmed the signing of Kieran Adams on a 2 and a half year contract from Locos and he goes straight into the squad for their trip to Clach. Long term injury victim Martin MacDonald is their only absentee. 

Formartine Utd v Inverurie Locos

Formartine squeezed past Rothes in the cup during the week and they take on Locos in a derby clash at North Lodge Park tomorrow. Striker Neil Gauld will hope to retain his place after netting a double in midweek.

Locos will look to bounce back from their mauling at Brora, but face another tough test at local rivals Formartine. Neil McLean misses out and boss Neil Cooper is waiting on the fitness of one other player before naming his squad.

Cove Rangers v Forres Mechanics
Cove welcome Forres to Harlaw Park and they're in imperious form, having notched up a stunning 24 goals in their last four games. Jonny Smith and Grant Campbell are their only absentees for this one.

Forres face another big test at the free scoring champions after they pushed Brora all the way in midweek. Jordan Wardrope and Kyle Scott remain out for the visitors, while Stuart Knight is doubtful after coming off injured in midweek.

Strong thrilled by testimonial turnout

Aberdeen Under-20s ran out 2-1 winners against Buckie in Jags keeper Darren Strong’s testimonial.

Strong gave thanks to everyone who turned out for the game at Victoria Park.

He said: “It was very rewarding to see so many people there. It meant a lot to me.”

Buckie took the lead with a goal from assistant manager Lewis Mackinnon.

However, the Dons quickly restored parity courtesy of a ferocious shot from Scott Wright and the striker hit the winning goal just before the break.

Macmillan Cancer Support, Breast Cancer UK, Clic Sargent and The Archie Foundation will all receive half of the proceeds from the match and the entire testimonial season.

Strong added: “It all came together well. The game was good and I made a couple of saves.

“We wore special pink strips mentioning the four charities and I would like to thank Kris Hunter and Paul D’Arcy at Soccer World for their help with that.”

Match previews: Wednesday 15th February

It's a big night of Highland League and Breedon Highland League Cup action tonight, with Brora Rangers and Cove Rangers both looking for wins to close the gap on league leaders Buckie Thistle.

Victory for both clubs would mean only a point would separate the top three in the table, but opponents Forres and Huntly are in fine form themselves and will provide a significant test on home soil.

Elsewhere, Lossiemouth host Wick Academy at Grant Park and both sides will be looking to bounce back from League Cup exits at the weekend. Victory for either side would lift them one place in the league table. 

In the Breedon League Cup First Round, Clach take on Fort William at Grant Street, with the victors facing a trip to the winners of tonight's other First Round tie between Rothes and Formartine at Mackessack Park.

The Speysiders meanwhile have signed five youngsters on loan from Caley Thistle until the end of the season: defenders Ryan McRitchie, Chris Brown and Stephen Rennie, midfielder Struan McArthur and striker Keir Smith. Two of the quintet could make their debuts for the club tonight.
