Highland League Cup Final
Cove Rangers v Formartine Utd
Cove Rangers meet Formartine United at Harlaw Park in a repeat of the 2017 Highland League Cup final, which Cove won at Bellslea. Boss John Sheran has a fully fit squad to choose from.
Formartine are the current cup holders and did beat the Aberdeen side on their way to lifting the Aberdeenshire Shield earlier in the season. Gary McGowan and Conor Gethins will hope to be involved for United after scoring a hat-trick and a double respectively against Strathspey nine days ago.
Clach v Fraserburgh
Clach take on Fraserburgh at Grant Street and they'll be without the injured Steve Martin, while Ryan Mackintosh is on holiday. Colin Macrae returns to the squad after recovering from his operation.
Gary Harris, Ryan Christie and Ryan Sargent remain out injured for the Broch, and Nathan Stuart is unavailable. Lewis Davidson, Willie West, Cammy Buchan and Paul Young return to the squad. Six points from their last two matches will ensure a top three finish for the visitors.
Fort William v Nairn County
Fort have four games remaining to gain their first league win of the campaign, the first of which is at home to Nairn.
Gregg Main is suspended for the visitors, Adam Naismith is unavailable and Tom McLennan out through injury.
Huntly v Buckie Thistle
Huntly face Buckie at Christie Park and the home side can go level with their opponents in the league table with a win.
Buckie will make the short trip without the injured Craig Doratt (knee), Cieran McLean (knee), John McLeod (hip), Shaun Carroll (knee) and Shaun Wood (knee).
Rothes v Wick Academy
Rothes have a home clash with Wick and their only absentee is Paul Macleod, who's away to Australia for a family holiday.
Wick are without Grant Steven and Jack Halliday through injury, while Michael Steven, Davie Allan and Jack Henry are all suspended. Andy Hardwick, Sam Mackay, Gordon McNab and Marc Macgregor are also unavailable.
Strathspey Thistle v Keith
David Watson is unavailable for Strathspey and misses the visit of Keith to Seafield Park. Graeme Grant is also out for the home side.
Keith are just three points ahead of the Grantown men in the league table and will aim to widen that gap with a win in this one.
Turriff Utd v Deveronvale
Turriff and Deveronvale meet in a derby match at The Haughs, and the home side will be without the suspended Drew Copeland.
Vale returned to winning ways with a victory at Keith last weekend and they'll hope to continue that form against their local rivals.
