Highland Football League
Brora Rangers v Lossiemouth
Brora's one hundred percent winning start to the season ended in midweek at the hands of Cove Rangers in the Challenge Cup. They'll aim to bounce back against Lossie at Dudgeon Park, but must do so without Greg Morrison, John Pickles and Kyle Macleod through injury. Scott Davidson will have a late fitness test.
Lossie remain without Jack MacArthur and Niall Kennedy, but the rest of the squad are fit and in contention to start for the visitors.
Buckie Thistle v Fraserburgh
Match of the day is at Victoria Park, where third placed Buckie take on early league leaders Fraserburgh. Joe McCabe returns from suspension for the Jags, but Cieran McLean and John McLeod remain out injured.
Broch thumped six past Clach last weekend to make it an impressive 13 goals in 3 league games, they'll look to continue that scoring form in this one. Jamie Beagrie is available again after suspension.
Clach v Wick Academy
Clach defender Sean Webb will be in temporary charge when the Inverness side try to get their first Highland League points of the season against Wick at Grant Street.
Wick duo Jack Halliday and Michael Steven could return as they look to improve on taking just one point from their opening three league matches.
Formartine Utd v Deveronvale
Formartine followed up an impressive win at Wick with a superb display to knock League One Peterhead out of the Challenge Cup in midweek. They'll aim to continue that form against Deveronvale at North Lodge Park.
Vale also returned to form with a comfortable win over Huntly last time out. Courtney Cooper, Kevin Adams and Sam Robertson miss out today, but Kyle Willox and Harry Noble both return to the squad.
