Team news

Brora Rangers v Inverurie Locos

Second placed Brora take on Locos in fifth at Dudgeon Park. The home recorded yet another impressive away victory at Turriff last time out, and they again have a fully fit squad for this one.

Locos remain without Johnny Smith and Colin Charlesworth for the trip north, as they look for a win to close the gap on the top four.

Buckie Thistle v Deveronvale

It's derby day at Victoria Park and Buckie will be trying to halt a run of four games without a win in the league. Hamish Munro is back in the squad after a long spell out through injury.

Michael Dunn is suspended for the visitors, who could climb above their local rivals into eighth place with a win.

Cove Rangers v Strathspey Thistle

Cove remain three points clear at the top of the table, with games in hand over all their title rivals. Darryn Kelly is the only absentee for the home side.

James McShane and Craig Mainland are fit again and return to the squad for the Grantown Jags, but Ross Naismith and Richard Tawse both miss out with work commitments.

Fraserburgh v Forres Mechanics

Another top six clash takes place at Bellslea, where Fraserburgh and Forres will be hoping to return to winning ways. Gary Harris and Willie West remain out injured, while Michael Rae and Ryan Christie could be fit enough to make the bench. 

Ross McPherson is suspended for the visitors and Alan Macphee is unavailable. Callum Howarth is doubtful with an ankle injury and will have a late fitness test.

Lossiemouth v Turriff Utd

Connor Macauley is suspended for Lossie and misses the visit of Turriff to Grant Park. The home side will be aiming for just their second league win of the season.

Liam Strachan also misses out through suspension for Turriff.
