Breedon Highland League Cup Prelim Round
Keith v Forres Mechanics
Keith are missing Michael Dunn, Ryan Keir, Ryan Spink, Bruce Milne and Craig MacAskill through injury for the visit of Forres to Kynoch Park. Frazer Hall & Courney Cooper are also unavailable and Adam Clark is suspended.
Forres are in fine form and have netted ten times in their last two away matches at Clach and Fort William. Jordan Wardrope, Graham Fraser, Kyle Scott and Fraser Forbes all miss out for the visitors tomorrow.
Strathspey Th v Formartine Utd
Strathspey took an excellent point against Cove last weekend to move off the bottom of the league, but they face another tough test against Formartine in the Highland League Cup. The Grantown Jags will be without Jack Maley and James McKay, who both joined Rothes this week.
Garry Wood is suspended for the visitors, who were dealt a blow earlier this week with the resignation of Assistant Manager Mike Cormack due to work commitments.
Buckie Thistle v Inverurie Locos
Buckie's lead at the top was reduced to three points with Brora's win over Deveronvale last weekend, while Thistle were idle after their trip to Huntly was postponed. Andy Low, Kai Ross and Andrew Skinner are all likely to remain out for the home side.
Locos boss Neil Cooper has a full squad to choose from for the trip to Victoria Park.
Deveronvale v Wick Academy
Deveronvale take on Wick Academy at Princess Royal Park as they look to improve on a run of four games without a win. Scott Fraser, Chris Blackhall and Lukas Krobot miss out for Vale, but Graeme Watt returns to the squad.
Wick suffered a crushing defeat at home to Nairn last time out and the Scorries will look to bounce straight back against the Banff men. Young striker Ross MacIver has joined the club on loan from Ross County for the rest of the season.
Cove Rangers v Fort William
Cove will hope to return to winning ways against bottom dogs Fort William at Grant Park, after their draw at Strathspey last weekend saw them fall four points behind second-place Brora. Jason Brown has signed for the club on loan until the end of season from Inverness Caley Thistle.
Fort are without captain Iain Foggo, who looks likely to miss the rest of the season after sustaining a knee injury against Forres. Scott Chisholm is away on holiday, while Richard Tawse, Iain MacIntyre and Lewis Campbell return to the squad.
