Highland League

Brora Rangers v Fort William

Brora were unlucky to go down by a single goal to Ross County in their North of Scotland Cup Semi-Final in midweek, and they'll hope to bounce back to winning ways at home to Fort William. Colin Williamson and Niall Docherty are suspended for the home side, while Zander Sutherland, James Ross and Martin Maclean are out injured.

Fort have a few players missing due to work commitments and a couple of injury absentees. Boss Kris Anderson will have a young squad to choose from for this one.

Buckie Thistle v Wick Academy 

Buckie take on away day specialists Wick at Victoria Park and they'll be without Craig Dorrat and Scott Adams with hamstring injuries. Drew Copeland has returned from a loan spell with Culter and will be in the squad. 

Wick travel south without Ross Allan through injury and Andy Hardwick with work commitments.

Cove Rangers v Formartine United

It's sure to be a cracker at Balmoral Stadium as league leaders Cove take on fierce rivals Formartine. The Aberdeen men needed extra time to get past Deveronvale in midweek and manager John Sheran may choose to return the likes of Daniel Park and Ryan Strachan to the starting line-up.

Formartine were unlucky to lose out to Northern Irish cracks Coleraine on penalties in the Irn Bru Cup last time out. Graeme Rodger will be available as his suspension will only apply to that competition.

Fraserburgh v Clach

Fraserburgh recorded a superb win at in-form Forres last weekend and they'll look to continue that form against Clach at Bellslea. Bryan Hay returns, but Ryan Christie is out injured and Lewis Davidson has work commitments.

Clach will be without Blair Lawrie, Martin   Callum, Steven Edwards, Sean Webb, Paul Smith and Struan Macarthur, who are all injured. Michael Finnis is also doubtful and James Beeston and Ian Penwright have work commitments. Ryan Mackintosh and Dougie Maclennan return and the visitors are likely to have two or three youth players on the bench.

Huntly v Deveronvale

Huntly face Deveronvale at Christie Park and they'll be without Alex Thoirs due to work commitments, Ryan McRitchie with a hamstring injury and Paul Napier, who is suspended. Glenn Murison is also unavailable and Neale Davidson and Martin Charlesworth remain out long term.

Vale pushed Cove all the way in the Aberdeenshire Cup in midweek, and boss Steve Dolan has the same squad to choose from for the short trip to Strathbogie.

Keith v Strathspey Thistle

Keith have several players missing for the visit of Strathspey, including Scott Begg, James Brownie, Bradley Manson,
Marc Young, Ryan Spink and Michael Selfridge. Jamie Lennox is also doubtful and will have a late fitness test.

Strathspey have appointed Gordon Nicholson and Tommy Wilson as their new management team after the resignation of Ally Munro. The Jags returned to form with a draw against Formartine and a narrow defeat to unbeaten Cove last weekend, they'll hope to continue that form at Kynoch Park.

Lossiemouth v Inverurie Locos

Lossie have a home clash with Locos and Aaron Hamilton will miss out through injury for the Coasters. Aaron MacLean comes back into contention and new signings Ryan Stuart and Bruno Martins will hope to make their debuts for the club.

Joe McCabe is banned for the visitors after his red card in their excellent win over Brora. Jonny Smith, Colin Charlesworth, Andy Hunter and Kyle Gordon remain out, but Jamie Michie could return to squad after injury.

Nairn County v Turriff Utd

Nairn captain Gregg Main is doubtful for the visit of Turriff to Station Park with a facial injury. Adam Naismith is available again, but Ewen Urquhart and Danny Highet are both unavailable and goalkeeper Dylan Maclean is still out injured.

United will be without skipper Cammy Bowden, who has had surgery on a knee injury this week.

Rothes v Forres Mechanics

Rothes face Forres at Mackessack Park and they remain without defender Jamie Duff through injury. Craig Cormack and Dale Wood are available again and return to the squad.

Forres suffered a rare league defeat at home to Fraserburgh last weekend, before crashing out of the North of Scotland Cup to Championship side Caley Thistle. They'll aim to bounce back to winning ways against the Speysiders.
