Scottish Cup Second Round
Albion Rovers v Formartine Utd
Formartine travel to Coatbridge to take on Albion Rovers, who sit bottom of League Two with just one league win all season. The visitors will again be without Player-Manager Paul Lawson through suspension.
Brora Rangers v Coldstream
Brora take on Coldstream at Dudgeon Park as they look to avoid becoming the visitor's second Highland League scalp of the competition, after they won at Strathspey in the First Round.
Cove Rangers v Auchinleck Talbot
Cove welcome Junior giants Auchinleck Talbot to Balmoral Stadium, and they'll be without the suspended Harry Milne. Paul McManus and Ryan Strachan also miss out through injury. Talbot won at Wick in the First Round and will provide a big test for the Highland League leaders.
Deveronvale v Stirling University
Deveronvale host Stirling University in Banff and the home side are boosted by the addition of Steven Davidson and Robbie Allan to the squad who put eight past Fort William last weekend. Jody Munro is suspended after his red card at Claggan Park.
Edusport Academy v Fraserburgh
Edusport took the scalp of Buckie Thistle in the last round and they face more Highland League opposition in the form of Fraserburgh at Galabank. The Broch will make the long trip to Annan without Lewis Davidson due to work commitments, while Scott Barbour remains out injured.
Rothes v Annan Athletic
Rothes boss Steven Macdonald has a full squad to choose from for the visit of Annan Athletic to Mackessack Park. The home side are attempting to reach the Third Round of the competition for the first time in their history.
Forres v Buckie Thistle
Forres take on Buckie at Mosset Park and a win for the home side would see them draw level with Brora and Fraserburgh in the league table. Craig McGovern and Simon Allan both miss out for the Cans.
Buckie remain without their long term injury victims, while Shaun Carroll and Steven Ross are added to that list with a pulled hamstring and pulled groin respectively. Daniel Bell and Kieran Adams are away with work, but Craig Cowie is back in the squad for first time in over a year.
Fort William v Inverurie Locos
Fort face Locos at Claggan Park and they'll be without Scott Hunter through suspension. A couple of players are still out injured and two are out due to work commitments. Manager Kris Anderson will again have a young squad to choose from for this one.
Locos will be aiming to bounce back from conceding six at Wick last weekend. They'll travel without the firepower of Johnny Smith, Andy Hunter, Chris Angus and Kyle Gordon, but winger Colin Charlesworth returns to the squad.
Keith v Nairn County
Keith pair Andy Smith and Michael Selfridge are still struggling with injury and could miss the visit of Nairn to Kynoch Park. Marc Young returns after nine weeks out and Scott Begg is back from suspension.
Nairn will hope to bounce back from their defeat at Strathspey last time out.
