Team news for Saturday 10th February

Highland League Cup First Round

Brora Rangers v Inverurie Locos
Brora will be hoping history can repeat itself in the Highland League Cup as they beat Locos in the first round last season on their way to lifting the trophy.  Joe Malin and Paul  Brindle remain out injured for the home side, while John Pickles, Dale Gillespie and Martin Maclean are all suspended.

Stuart Duff misses out through suspension for the visitors, who will look to repeat the form that has seen them take a point from their last two league visits to Dudgeon Park. 

Buckie Thistle v Forres Mechanics
Buckie's lead at the top of the table was cut to three points after their defeat at Brora last weekend, and they turn their attention to the cup tomorrow with the visit of Forres to Victoria Park. Andy Low, Kai Ross and Andrew Skinner are all out injured for the Jags.

Kyle Scott , Jordan Wardrope and Fraser Forbes miss out through injury for the visitors, while Craig McGovern is unavailable. Striker Andy Mcrae is in the squad after signing on loan from Caley Thistle and the club have been boosted with the news that Ross MacPherson has signed a one-year contract extension.

Clach v Fort William
Clach face Fort William at Grant Street as they look to repeat their League Cup success of 2014. Daniel Maclennan is doubtful with an ankle injury and Martin Callum and Matty Grant both miss out for the Lilywhites. Blair Lawrie returns to the squad.

Fort captain Ian Foggo has received confirmation on the extent of his knee injury and is unfortunately out for the rest of the season and possibly the start of next. Barna Tot and Lewis Campbell are missing due to work commitments, but 'keeper Douglas MacLennan is set to return and Caley Thistle loanee Stephen Foster could make his debut.
