Both Scottish Cup ties have been postponed again due to unplayable pitches. Wick Academy v Musselburgh Athletic has been rescheduled for Monday 21st December, 7.30pm kick off.
Clach P-P Inverurie Locos
Clach v Locos has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Deveronvale v Keith
Deveronvale will have Caretaker Manager Craig Stewart in charge for the visit of Keith, after the departure of club legend Steve Dolan earlier this week. Courtney Cooper is suspended following his red card at Huntly, while Ryan Farqhuar, Sam Robertson, Aaron Hamilton and Scott Dunn face late fitness tests. Colin Charlesworth (needs op), Kyle Willox (ankle) and Mathew Wallace (ankle) remain out injured.
Keith have enjoyed cup wins over Huntly and Fort William in their last two outings, and Co-Managers Andy Roddie and Tommy Wilson again have a fully fit squad to choose from for the short trip to Banff.
Fort William v Brora Rangers (Dudgeon Park)
Fort take on champions Brora at Dudgeon Park after the game was switched from an unplayable Claggan Park. Iain Foggo, Ronan Cameron, Kieran Forbes and Mateuasz Kulbacki miss out due to work commitments, while Daniel Mackintosh is also unavailable due to personal reasons. Callum Browett, Blair Faren and Danny Dempster are all out injured, and Paul Coutts is out for the season with ankle ligament damage. John Treasurer will have a late fitness test.
Colin Williamson returns to the squad for Brora, but they remain withough Greg Morrison through injury.
Lossiemouth v Huntly
Lossiemouth host Huntly at Grant Park, with manager Joe Russell likely to have a full strength squad to pick from, providing a couple of players pass late fitness tests.
Huntly enjoyed an excellent Scottish Cup win over Dalbeattie Star last weekend, and they'll aim to build on that as they look for their first league win of the season.
Nairn County v Fraserburgh
Nairn take on Fraserburgh at Station Park and the home side will be without the unavailable Glenn Main, Dylan Mackenzie and Lewis Mitchell.
Lewis Duncan returns from suspension for visitors Broch, but Lewis Davidson misses out due to work commitments.
Rothes v Buckie Thistle
Rothes face Buckie at Mackessack Park in a repeat of their recent League Cup Final clash. The home side are still without a host of first team regulars, including Dale Wood, Robert Donaldson, Steven Anderson, Aidan Wilson, Allan Pollock, Gary Kerr, Allen Mackenzie and Danny Macarthy. Gregg Main is also doubtful and will face a late fitness test.
Kyle McLeod, Declan Milne and Shaun Wood all miss out through injury for the visitors, while Daniel Bell is away with work. Goalkeeper Martin MacKinnon will be in the squad after he joined the club on loan from Caley Thistle.
