Brora Rangers v Keith
Brora continued their unbeaten league run with a draw at champions Cove last weekend, keeping them top of the table for the visit of Keith to Dudgeon Park.
Marc Young and Ryan Keir remain out injured for the visitors, while Scott Gray is also out with a sprained ankle. Michael Selfridge should return to the squad
Buckie Thistle v Fraserburgh
Buckie will aim to bounce back from a disappointing defeat at Clach when Fraserburgh visit Victoria Park. Kieran Adams, Craig Cowie and Craig Dorrat are available again and return to the Jags' squad. Scott Adams, John McLeod, Sam Urquhart, Shaun Carroll, Daniel Bell and Cieran McLean are all still out through injury.
Gary Harris, Ryan Christie, Willie West and Marc Dickson are all out injured for the Broch, who closed the gap on the top two to just three points with a win over Rothes last time out. Bryan Hay is back from suspension.
Deveronvale v Fort William
Deveronvale face Fort William at Princess Royal Park and boss Steve Dolan has the same 14 players to choose from who lost at Locos last weekend.
Fort face their first outing since conceding five in defeat at second bottom Lossie a fortnight ago.
Huntly v Clach
Huntly take on Clach at Christie Park and they're boosted by the return of Michael Clark, Ross Still and Euan Storrier. Cammy Booth misses out through suspension.
Scott Dunn serves the last of his three-game suspension for Clach, as they look to build on last weekend's excellent home win over Buckie.
Inverurie Locos v Wick Academy
Locos have a home meeting with Wick and they'll be without Neil Gauld, Andrew Watt and Johnny Smith.
The visitors are missing Danny McKay due to work commitments, Grant Aitkenhead through illness, and Jack Halliday and Grant Steven through injury.
Lossiemouth v Cove Rangers
Lossie face the might of Cove Rangers at Grant Park, but the Coasters are in better form and were unlucky to lost to a late goal at Strathspey last time out.
Dan Park returns to the Cove squad, leaving Darryn Kelly as their only absentee for this one.
Nairn County v Strathspey Thistle
Nairn and Strathspey meet at Station Park and the home side will hope to improve on their defeat to Locos in their last home outing.
The Grantown Jags are up to twelfth after beating Lossie last weekend, they'll be aiming for a win to increase the seven-point gap between the sides in the league table.
Rothes v Formartine Utd
Rothes take on Formartine at Mackessack Park and they are at full strength for the visit of Paul Lawson's men.
Formartine bounced back in style from their defeat at Fraserburgh by lifting the Aberdeenshire Shield, then beating Keith in the league last weekend.
Turriff Utd v Forres Mechanics
Turriff put up a good show in a narrow defeat at Wick last time out and they'll need to repeat that form when Forres visit The Haughs.
Scott Moore misses out for the visitors as he is away on honeymoon, while Simon Allan is also unavailable. Alan Mcphee returns to the squad after serving a suspension.
