Clach v Fraserburgh
Clach complete their league campaign against Fraserburgh at Grant Street and they'll be without Martin Callum, Stuart Leslie, Ian Penwright and Struan Scott-Woodhouse. John Campbell returns to the squad and some trialists will be involved as the Under 17 squad are in Manchester for a tournament.
Broch will look to bounce back from their defeat to Buckie in midweek, they travel without Jamie Beagrie and Ryan Cowie, who are both offshore.
Formartine Utd v Buckie Thistle
Formartine could still have a big say in the title race as they face league leaders Buckie at North Lodge Park. The home side bounced back well from their League Cup Final defeat to put five past Rothes in midweek.
Buckie hit five themselves in a superb win at Fraserburgh on Wednesday night, a result that put them in pole position in the title race. Andrew Skinner and Craig Dorrat both miss out with ankle injuries for The Jags, who could win the title with victory tomorrow if Brora and Cove fail to win at Fort and Lossie respectively.
Fort William v Brora Rangers
Ally Stark and Danny Highet have joined the injury list for Fort William as they end their league season at home to Brora. Scott Chisholm and Richard Tawse are missing due to work commitments and Liam Taylor and Michael Corbett are also unavailable. Ewan MacLean returns from injury and there are also welcome returns for Andrew Martin, Michael Gillespie and Mark Gillespie.
Brora are finishing the season very strongly and have won their last five matches without conceding a goal. Scott Houston is injured and is their only absentee for a game they must win to have any chance of winning the title.
Huntly v Forres Mechanics
Huntly take on Forres at Christie Park and Co-Managers Andy Roddie and Tommy Wilson have a fully fit squad to choose from, with the exception of Martin MacDonald.
Graeme Grant is suspended for the visitors, while Ross MacPherson and John Cameron are out injured. Stuart Soane and Graham Fraser return to the squad. Meanwhile, the club signed Islavale midfielder Jordan Milne on a pre-contract agreement this week.
Inverurie Locos v Nairn County
Locos face Nairn at Harlaw Park in their final match of the season and a point tomorrow will ensure a top-half finish. Ryan Broadhurst and Martin Laing are unavailable for this one.
Nairn duo Paul McLeod and Jamie McKay miss out through injury, but Gregg Main is available and returns to the squad. The Highland men will hope to follow up last weekend's comfortable win at Strathspey.
Keith v Wick Academy
Keith finish their season at home to Wick and a win for The Maroons could see them finish in the top half of the table, depending on the result at Locos.
Danny McCarthy could continue in goal for the visitors in place of his injured brother Sean, while Michael Steven is suspended. The likes of Alan Farquhar and Andrew Hardwick could return to the side after being on the bench at Brora.
Lossiemouth v Cove Rangers
Lossiemouth suffered a disappointing exit to Fort William in the North of Scotland Cup last time out and complete their campaign with two games against champions Cove. Darren McConnachie and Chris Ross are added to last week's squad.
Cove picked up another trophy last weekend with victory over Formartine in the Highland League Cup Final, but consecutive league draws with Turriff Utd have handed the title initiative to Buckie. Connor Scully, Eric Watson and Harry Milne are all suspended after their red cards at Turriff on Wednesday night, while Dean Lawrie is out injured.
Strathspey Th v Deveronvale
Strathspey sank to the bottom of the table with defeat at Fort William in midweek and they face Deveronvale in their final home game of the season tomorrow.
Vale will look for a return to the scoring form that saw them put five past Clach at the start of the month, after drawing blanks in defeats to Buckie and Locos in their last two matches.
Turriff Utd v Rothes
Turriff play their last game of the season against Rothes at The Haughs and they will be without Paul Young, Chris Herd, Cammy Bowden, David Ross, Aaron Sherman, Kenny Mair and Neale Davidson, with Neale unfortunately suffering his third leg break in just over two years. Robbie Allan and Kevin Main will also have late fitness tests.
Rothes are still without Keir Smith and Struan MacArthur as they look to continue their recent away form that has seen them take good points at Forres and Wick.
