Scottish Cup Second Round replay
Auchinleck Talbot v Cove Rangers
Cove make the long trek to Ayrshire to face Auchinleck in a replay after drawing the first match at Balmoral Stadium last weekend.
Paul McManus and Ryan Strachan are the only absentees for the Highland League leaders, with a visit to Fraserburgh awaiting the winners in the next round.
Brora Rangers v Formartine Utd
Two of the top six meet at Dudgeon Park and the home side will hope to continue the form that saw them put six past Coldstream in the cup last time out. Brora will be without Neil Macdonald and Dale Gillespie.
Formartine also recorded a superb win at Albion Rovers in the cup and they'll be looking for a win to close the gap on their opponents in the league table.
Buckie Thistle v Rothes
Buckie take on Rothes at Victoria Park and the Jags will be aiming to bounce back from conceding seven at Forres last Saturday. Craig Cowie could feature after returning from injury at Mosset Park.
Rothes manager Steven Macdonald has a full squad to choose from, a win for the visitors would take them to within a point of their opponents in the league table.
Deveronvale v Strathspey Thistle
Deveronvale suffered a disappointing Scottish Cup exit to Stirling University, but they are boosted by the return of Sam Robertson for the visit of Strathspey. Matthew Wallace, Dane Ballard, Liam Forbes and Jody Munro are all unavailable.
Strathspey are in great form having won three of their last four league matches. Graeme Grant and John Cameron remain out injured, but are both closing in on a return to fitness.
Huntly v Fraserburgh
Huntly face Fraserburgh at Christie Park and boss Martin Skinner has almost a full squad to choose from, minus Paul Napier and Chris Hay who are on holiday.
Broch duo Lewis Davidson and Scott Barbour return to the squad, but Aidan Combe is unavailable. The visitors could draw level on points with Cove at the top of the table with a win in this one.
