Today's scheduled Highland League match between Fort William and Forres Mechanics has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Highland Football League
Buckie Thistle v Formartine Utd
Buckie take on Formartine at Victoria Park and the Jags will be aiming to return to winning ways after three games without a win in the league.
The visitors have drawn three league games in succession and now find themselves eight points behind Fraserburgh in third.
Deveronvale v Cove Rangers
Vale face a tough task at home to league leaders Cove, but they're boosted by the news that Sam Robertson and Kevin Adams have signed contract extensions this week. Steven Davidson has joined Buchanhaven Hearts on loan until the end of the season.
Cove smashed six past Rothes in midweek to move three points clear at the top of the table. They'll hope to continue their winning ways at Princess Royal Park.
Fort William P-P Forres Mechanics
Huntly v Rothes
Huntly will be without their transfer-listed top scorer Gary McGowan through suspension for the visit of Rothes. Ryan McRitchie and Nick Gray are also unavailable, but loan signing from Elgin City Aiden Sopel is in the squad.
Jamie Duff remains out injured for the visitors, while Gary Kerr is doubtful and will face a late fitness test.
Inverurie Locos v Clach
Locos host Clach at Harlaw Park and they're still without Johnny Smith and Andrew Watt. Ryan Stott could be involved after signing for the club on a two-year deal from Formartine.
Keiron Chalmers and Aidan Wilson are unavailable for Clach, while Blair Lawrie and Steve Martin miss out due to work commitments, John Macaskill is suspended and James Beeston injured.
Lossiemouth v Brora Rangers
Lossie are improving and struck late to earn a point in a thrilling draw at Keith last time out. They face a tough task at home to title-chasing Brora today.
Mark Nicolson and John Pickles remain out for the Cattachs, who are now three points behind Cove after drawing with Formartine last weekend.
Nairn County v Keith
Nairn boss Ronnie Sharp is likely to name the same squad that recorded an excellent win over local rivals Forres in midweek, as County take on Keith at Station Park.
Marc Young returns for the visitors, but Scott Gray is still out injured. Only one point and one place separates the two sides in the league table.
Turriff Utd v Fraserburgh
Turriff returned to form with a superb win at Clach last time out, and they take on boss Kris Hunter's former side Fraserburgh at The Haughs.
Gary Harris, Ryan Christie, Willie West and Cammy Buchan are out injured long term for Broch, with Harris and Christie out until 2020 and West and Buchan for the rest of the season. Jamie Beagrie is offshore and Marc Dickson remains out, but should return from injury soon.
Wick Academy v Strathspey Thistle
Wick are without Jack Halliday and Grant Steven through injury for the visit of Strathspey to Harmsworth Park. Jack Henry, and Marc Macgregor are doubtful and will have late fitness tests.
Strathspey have won two of their last three to move up to twelfth place in the league table and continue their excellent season. Dominick Edwards is an injury doubt for this one and Craig Mainland misses out. John Cameron returns to the squad.
