Brora Rangers v Turriff United
Brora have won their last three league games without conceding a goal and sit joint top of the table with Fraserburgh and Cove. James Pickles, James Ross and Zander Sutherland are unavailable for the visit of Turriff to Dudgeon Park.
Turriff have also enjoyed a decent start to the season, and they could close the gap on their opponents to just four points with a win in this one.
Buckie Thistle v Nairn County
Buckie take on Nairn at Victoria Park on the back of putting eight past Lossie in midweek. A win for the Jags would take them five points clear of today's opponents in the league table.
Nairn travel without Dylan McLean, Cohen Ramsey, Kenny McKenzie, Jack McLean and Craig Munro, who are all injured.
Clach v Forres Mechanics
Clach face Forres at Grant Street and they'll be without goalkeepers Dougie Maclennan and Steve Martin. Steven Edwards, Blair Lawrie, Ryan Mackintosh, Rorie Macleod and Paul Smith remain out injured and they're now joined by Sean Webb. James Beeston returns to the squad.
Forres are in superb form and recorded an excellent victory at Formartine in midweek. Craig McGovern is out with a knee injury, but Robbie Duncanson is available again and returns to the squad.
Cove Rangers - Fort William
Cove came from behind to grab a vital win at Inverurie Locos in midweek and they'll look to continue that form at home to Fort William. Darryn Kelly and Scott Ross both miss out, while Paul McManus is doubtful and will face a late fitness test.
Fort have Kevin MacKinnon out with a head injury, but John Treasurer is fit again and returns. Two further players miss out with work commitments as the visitors look to build on their draw with Strathspey last time out.
