Forres Mechanics v Civil Service Strollers

Team news for matches on Sat 15th September

Highland League

Brora Rangers v Fort William

Brora were unlucky to go down by a single goal to Ross County in their North of Scotland Cup Semi-Final in midweek, and they'll hope to bounce back to winning ways at home to Fort William. Colin Williamson and Niall Docherty are suspended for the home side, while Zander Sutherland, James Ross and Martin Maclean are out injured.

Fort have a few players missing due to work commitments and a couple of injury absentees. Boss Kris Anderson will have a young squad to choose from for this one.

Buckie Thistle v Wick Academy 

Buckie take on away day specialists Wick at Victoria Park and they'll be without Craig Dorrat and Scott Adams with hamstring injuries. Drew Copeland has returned from a loan spell with Culter and will be in the squad. 

Wick travel south without Ross Allan through injury and Andy Hardwick with work commitments.

Cove Rangers v Formartine United

It's sure to be a cracker at Balmoral Stadium as league leaders Cove take on fierce rivals Formartine. The Aberdeen men needed extra time to get past Deveronvale in midweek and manager John Sheran may choose to return the likes of Daniel Park and Ryan Strachan to the starting line-up.

Formartine were unlucky to lose out to Northern Irish cracks Coleraine on penalties in the Irn Bru Cup last time out. Graeme Rodger will be available as his suspension will only apply to that competition.

Fraserburgh v Clach

Fraserburgh recorded a superb win at in-form Forres last weekend and they'll look to continue that form against Clach at Bellslea. Bryan Hay returns, but Ryan Christie is out injured and Lewis Davidson has work commitments.

Clach will be without Blair Lawrie, Martin   Callum, Steven Edwards, Sean Webb, Paul Smith and Struan Macarthur, who are all injured. Michael Finnis is also doubtful and James Beeston and Ian Penwright have work commitments. Ryan Mackintosh and Dougie Maclennan return and the visitors are likely to have two or three youth players on the bench.

Huntly v Deveronvale

Huntly face Deveronvale at Christie Park and they'll be without Alex Thoirs due to work commitments, Ryan McRitchie with a hamstring injury and Paul Napier, who is suspended. Glenn Murison is also unavailable and Neale Davidson and Martin Charlesworth remain out long term.

Vale pushed Cove all the way in the Aberdeenshire Cup in midweek, and boss Steve Dolan has the same squad to choose from for the short trip to Strathbogie.
