Buckie Thistle v Brora Rangers
Buckie take on Brora at Victoria Park and on top of their long term absentees, they'll be without Sam Robertson and Craig Dorrat through suspension. Lewis Mackinnon is also unavailable.
Scott Davidson will be added to the Brora squad after he joined the club from Rothes. James Ross will return, with Paul Brindle the only remaining absentee.
Deveronvale v Clach
Clach are the visitors to Princess Royal Park and boss Steve Dolan will have the same squad to choose from that was narrowly beaten at Forres last time out.
Blair Lawrie, (Groin) Dougie Maclennan (Nose) and Paul Smith (holiday) all miss out for the visitors. Michael Finnis, James Beeston and Ian Penwright return to the squad.
Formartine Utd v Fort William
Formartine produced an injury time winner to keep their excellent league run going at Wick last weekend. They'll aim to continue that form when Fort William visit North Lodge Park.
Fort boss Kris Anderson said he has a "hungry young side travelling to Pitmedden, vastly improving and keen to impress."
Huntly v Keith
Huntly face Keith in a derby clash at Christie Park and the homd side have doubts over Zander Jack, Gary McGowan, Alex Thoirs and Blair Johnson. They will all face a late fitness test.
Ryan Kier is the only absentee for Keith, who will be looking for a win to take them level on points with today's opponents.
Inverurie Locos v Strathspey Thistle
Strathspey are the first visitors of 2019 to Harlaw Park and Locos remain without Colin Charlesworth and Johnny Smith.Jamie Michie and Joe McCabe return to the squad.
John Cameron and Richard Tawse return for the Jags, while Stephen Rennie misses out through suspension.
Lossiemouth v Rothes
Aaron MacLean is unavailable for Lossie and misses the visit of Rothes to Grant Park. James MacLaren, Brodie Allan, Jack MacArthur and Bruno Martins are all doubtful and will face late fitness tests.
Rothes are at full strength for this one as they look to bounce back from defeat to Brora last weekend.
Nairn County v Fraserburgh
Nairn take on Fraserburgh at Station Park and Liam Shewan comes into contention to make his debut, having joined the club from Clach before Christmas. Adam Porritt is still suspended.
Broch will hope to continue the goalscoring form that saw them hit double figures against Lossie last time out.
Turriff Utd v Cove Rangers
Turriff face league leaders Cove at The Haughs and they're boosted by their return to winning ways at Strathspey last Saturday.
The Cove juggernaut rolls on and they kept yet another clean sheet in the win over Huntly last weekend, meaning the Aberdeen side have conceded just seven league goals this season.
Wick Academy v Forres Mechanics
Wick are without Danny Mackay (suspended) and Grant Steven (injured). All other players are available for the visit of Forres.
Lee Fraser and Craig McGovern miss out for the visitors, who are aiming for their third league win on the bounce.
