Team news for matches on Saturday 26th August

Formartine Utd v Clach
Formartine were no match for champions Buckie last weekend and they'll look to return to winning ways at home to Clach. Jevan Anderson, Scott Henry and Jonny Crawford all missed the trip to Victoria Park and boss Kris Hunter will hope they're available to bolster the back line.

Clach are without John Campbell, David McGurk and Liam Shewan, but Stuart Leslie, Daniel Maclennan and Michael Finnis are available again and return to the squad.

Forres Mechanics v Cove Rangers
Forres followed up their draw at Rothes last Saturday by going nap against the Speysiders in the North of Scotland Cup in midweek. They face a huge test against unbeaten league leaders Cove Rangers and remain without Jordan Milne , Ryan Stuart and Jordan Wardrope. Graeme Grant is also a doubt with a knee problem.

Cove continued their superb start to the season with a comfortable win over second-placed Huntly in the Aberdeenshire Cup on Wednesday night. They are still without Johnny Smith and Ryan Stott for the trip to Mosset Park.

Fort William v Strathspey Th
Fort recorded their first win of the season with a comprehensive victory over a young Elgin City outfit in the North of Scotland Cup during the week. Farquhar Macrae and Danny Highet both miss the bottom of the table clash with Strathspey with hamstring injuries.

Strathspey lost to a late goal at Lossiemouth last weekend after leading twice and they'll look to get their first league points on the board at Claggan Park.

Fraserburgh v Brora Rangers
Fraserburgh are in fine form and continued their unbeaten run against Cove when a late Marc Dickson effort earned them a point at Harlaw Park. Boss Mark Cowie has a full squad to choose from for the visit of Brora Rangers to Bellslea.

Brora bounced back to winning ways against Clach in the cup in midweek and they will travel without Gavin Morrison, who is suspended after his red card in the defeat to Inverurie Locos.

Team news for matches on Saturday 19th August

Brora Rangers v Inverurie Locos
Brora cruised to victory last weekend at Fort William, before exiting the Irn Bru cup at Raith in midweek. Paul Brindle and John Pickles are back in the squad for the visit of Locos to Dudgeon Park.

The visitors will be without Stuart Duff due to suspension and Connor Rennie due to injury. Ryan Broadhurst and Neil Mclean are available again and return to the squad.

Buckie Thistle v Formartine Utd
An early-season cracker as champions Buckie take on second placed Formartine at Victoria Park. The Jags returned to form with superb wins over Wick and Championship side Brechin City, and they have former Formartine defender Hamish Munro back in the squad. Craig Dorrat misses out with an ankle injury.

Formartine remain unbeaten in the league and took Hearts Colts to extra time in the Irn Bru cup in midweek. Wayne Mackintosh, Graeme Rodger and Stuart Anderson could all return to the starting line-up for United.

Clach v Wick Academy
Clach have several players missing for the visit of Wick to Grant Street, with Martin Callum, David McGurk, John Campbell, Paul Smith, Ian Penwright and Fraser Robertson all out injured. Scott Morrison also misses out as he is suspended.

Academy are still looking for their first win and suffered another blow during the week with the retiral of James Pickles after five excellent years at Harmsworth Park.

Cove Rangers v Fraserburgh
Cove boss John Sheran has a full squad to choose from as they look to continue their impressive start to the season against Fraserburgh at Harlaw Park. 

Broch put an end to Rothes' unbeaten start to the season last time out and they'll hope to extend their impressive seven-game unbeaten run against the early league leaders.
