Brora Rangers v Keith
Brora continued their unbeaten league run with a draw at champions Cove last weekend, keeping them top of the table for the visit of Keith to Dudgeon Park.
Marc Young and Ryan Keir remain out injured for the visitors, while Scott Gray is also out with a sprained ankle. Michael Selfridge should return to the squad
Buckie Thistle v Fraserburgh
Buckie will aim to bounce back from a disappointing defeat at Clach when Fraserburgh visit Victoria Park. Kieran Adams, Craig Cowie and Craig Dorrat are available again and return to the Jags' squad. Scott Adams, John McLeod, Sam Urquhart, Shaun Carroll, Daniel Bell and Cieran McLean are all still out through injury.
Gary Harris, Ryan Christie, Willie West and Marc Dickson are all out injured for the Broch, who closed the gap on the top two to just three points with a win over Rothes last time out. Bryan Hay is back from suspension.
Deveronvale v Fort William
Deveronvale face Fort William at Princess Royal Park and boss Steve Dolan has the same 14 players to choose from who lost at Locos last weekend.
Fort face their first outing since conceding five in defeat at second bottom Lossie a fortnight ago.
Huntly v Clach
Huntly take on Clach at Christie Park and they're boosted by the return of Michael Clark, Ross Still and Euan Storrier. Cammy Booth misses out through suspension.
Scott Dunn serves the last of his three-game suspension for Clach, as they look to build on last weekend's excellent home win over Buckie.
Inverurie Locos v Wick Academy
Locos have a home meeting with Wick and they'll be without Neil Gauld, Andrew Watt and Johnny Smith.
The visitors are missing Danny McKay due to work commitments, Grant Aitkenhead through illness, and Jack Halliday and Grant Steven through injury.

Clach v Buckie Thistle (2pm)
Clach take on Buckie at Grant Street and they'll be without Colin Macrae through injury and Scott Dunn through suspension. Goalkeeper Dougie Maclennan is back in the squad after long term injury.
Sam Urquhart (knee), John McLeod (hip), Daniel Bell (knee), Cieran McLean (knee), Craig Dorrat (thigh), Scott Adams (ankle) and Shaun Carroll (knee) are all out injured for Buckie. Craig Cowie and Kieran Adams also miss out due to work commitments. Jay Cheyne returns to the squad.
Cove Rangers v Brora Rangers
Match of the day, and possibly the league season so far, is at Balmoral Stadium where champions Cove take on league leaders Brora. Cove boss John Sheran has almost a full squad to choose from, with only Darren Kelly unavailable.
Brora player-manager Steven Mackay does have a full squad available, with Gavin Morrison returning from suspension. The Cattachs went top of the table on goal difference after going nap against Strathspey last weekend.
Formartine United v Keith
Formartine host Keith at North Lodge Park and they'll be on a high after lifting the Aberdeenshire Shield with an impressive win over Banks o' Dee in midweek.
Marc Young is doubtful for the visitors and will have a late fitness test. Ryan Keir remains out injured. The Maroons will be keen for this one to go ahead after four weeks without a game.
Forres Mechanics v Huntly
Forres face Huntly at Mosset Park and they'll be without Ross MacPherson and Simon Allan who are both attending Scott Moore's wedding. Alan MacPhee is suspended after his red card at Buckie last time out.
Euan Storrier and Ross Still remain out through suspension for Huntly, while Alex Thoirs is available again and returns to the squad.
