Brora Rangers v Formartine Utd
Match of the day is at Dudgeon Park where surely only a win will keep either Brora or Formartine in the title race. Paul Brindle is the only injury absentee for the home side.
Formartine are unbeaten in eleven league matches and have kept five clean sheets in a row, a win for the visitors would close the gap on their opponents to five points with three games in hand.
Deveronvale v Forres Mechanics
Liam Forbes returns to the Deveronvale squad for the visit of Forres to Princess Royal Park. Dan Smith, Graeme Watt, Zander Jack and Scott Fraser are all unavailable.
Callum Howarth misses out for Forres with an ankle ligament problem, while Alan Pollock, Owen Paterson and Connor MacIver are all unavailable. Scott Moore returns from suspension. Meanwhile, the club announced today that midfielder Aaron McLean has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Lossiemouth in the summer.
Fort William v Rothes
Fort William quartet Ally Stark, Adam Porritt, Barna Tot and Michael Ellis return to the squad for their clash with Rothes at Claggan Park. Goalkeeper Douglas MacLennan suffered an injury in training and will miss the rest of the season.
Rothes pushed champions Cove all the way last weekend and they will still be without the suspended Ryan Macritchie tomorrow. Ben Cullen is away to America with the RAF until May, but Ian Macrae is fully fit again and returns to the squad.
Huntly v Buckie Thistle
Huntly face title chasing Buckie at Christie Park and they have Kieran Adams available again after serving his three-game ban. Martin MacDonald remains out long term.
The Jags remain at the top of the table after two good wins over Wick Academy. Andrew Skinner, Kai Ross and Sean Carroll are all out injured for the visitors.
