Team news for matches on Saturday 15th April

Clach v Fraserburgh
Clach complete their league campaign against Fraserburgh at Grant Street and they'll be without Martin Callum, Stuart Leslie, Ian Penwright and Struan Scott-Woodhouse. John Campbell returns to the squad and some trialists will be involved as the Under 17 squad are in Manchester for a tournament.

Broch will look to bounce back from their defeat to Buckie in midweek, they travel without Jamie Beagrie and Ryan Cowie, who are both offshore.

Formartine Utd v Buckie Thistle
Formartine could still have a big say in the title race as they face league leaders Buckie at North Lodge Park. The home side bounced back well from their League Cup Final defeat to put five past Rothes in midweek.

Buckie hit five themselves in a superb win at Fraserburgh on Wednesday night, a result that put them in pole position in the title race. Andrew Skinner and Craig Dorrat both miss out with ankle injuries for The Jags, who could win the title with victory tomorrow if Brora and Cove fail to win at Fort and Lossie respectively.

Fort William v Brora Rangers
Ally Stark and Danny Highet have joined the injury list for Fort William as they end their league season at home to Brora. Scott Chisholm and Richard Tawse are missing due to work commitments and Liam Taylor and Michael Corbett are also unavailable. Ewan MacLean returns from injury and there are also welcome returns for Andrew Martin, Michael Gillespie and Mark Gillespie.

Brora are finishing the season very strongly and have won their last five matches without conceding a goal. Scott Houston is injured and is their only absentee for a game they must win to have any chance of winning the title.

Huntly v Forres Mechanics
Huntly take on Forres at Christie Park and Co-Managers Andy Roddie and Tommy Wilson have a fully fit squad to choose from, with the exception of Martin MacDonald.

Graeme Grant is suspended for the visitors, while Ross MacPherson and John Cameron are out injured. Stuart Soane and Graham Fraser return to the squad. Meanwhile, the club signed Islavale midfielder Jordan Milne on a pre-contract agreement this week.

Match previews: Wednesday 12th April

Tonight sees a pivotal round of fixtures taking place in the race for the Highland League title.

Buckie, Brora and Cove are locked together on 75 points at the top of the table and all three face tough tests this evening.

Leaders Buckie travel to Fraserburgh, Brora have a home derby against Wick and Cove travel to take on Turriff at The Haughs.

The destination of the championship will not be decided tonight, but the outcomes of the three matches will certainly be crucial in deciding where it's heading this campaign.

It's sure to be a cracking night of action and we'll have the results for you right here at full time.

Cove win Breedon Highland League Cup

Jason Brown scored a dramatic late winner to win Cove the Breedon Highland League Cup.

John Sheran’s men beat Formartine 2-1.

Paul McManus scored the opening goal in the 76th minute with a header following a scramble in the United penalty area.

Formartine equalised shortly afterwards as a free-kick from Jamie Masson was nodded across goal by Neil Gauld and Garry Wood supplied the finish.

Cove then scored a 90th minute winner through a header from Brown, following a fumble by United keeper Andy Reid.

Sheran coy on Cove's double chances

Cove boss John Sheran is remaining on his side's chances of claiming the double after they won the Breedon Highland League Cup.

Sheran's side beat Formartine 2-1 at Bellslea to taste success in the cup final.

Cove are still in the mix to retain their Highland League title, as they battle Buckie and Brora for the championship.

Winning the cup should give Cove a confidence boost, but Sheran insists there is still all to play for in the title race.

Lewis Gordon was one of the reporters to speak to Sheran after the final. Listen to the interview below.

Forres Mechanics v Rothes 

Forres are in great form as they face Rothes at Mosset Park. Stuart Soane is suspended, Graham Fraser unavailable and John Cameron, Callum Howarth and Jordan Wardrope are all out injured for the home side.
