Brora Rangers v Inverurie Locos
Brora cruised to victory last weekend at Fort William, before exiting the Irn Bru cup at Raith in midweek. Paul Brindle and John Pickles are back in the squad for the visit of Locos to Dudgeon Park.
The visitors will be without Stuart Duff due to suspension and Connor Rennie due to injury. Ryan Broadhurst and Neil Mclean are available again and return to the squad.
Buckie Thistle v Formartine Utd
An early-season cracker as champions Buckie take on second placed Formartine at Victoria Park. The Jags returned to form with superb wins over Wick and Championship side Brechin City, and they have former Formartine defender Hamish Munro back in the squad. Craig Dorrat misses out with an ankle injury.
Formartine remain unbeaten in the league and took Hearts Colts to extra time in the Irn Bru cup in midweek. Wayne Mackintosh, Graeme Rodger and Stuart Anderson could all return to the starting line-up for United.
Clach v Wick Academy
Clach have several players missing for the visit of Wick to Grant Street, with Martin Callum, David McGurk, John Campbell, Paul Smith, Ian Penwright and Fraser Robertson all out injured. Scott Morrison also misses out as he is suspended.
Academy are still looking for their first win and suffered another blow during the week with the retiral of James Pickles after five excellent years at Harmsworth Park.
Cove Rangers v Fraserburgh
Cove boss John Sheran has a full squad to choose from as they look to continue their impressive start to the season against Fraserburgh at Harlaw Park.
Broch put an end to Rothes' unbeaten start to the season last time out and they'll hope to extend their impressive seven-game unbeaten run against the early league leaders.
