The following Highland League fixtures scheduled for tomorrow have been postponed:
Brora Rangers v Deveronvale
Clach v Rothes
Huntly v Forres Mechanics
Nairn County v Formartine Utd
Strathspey Th v Fraserburgh
Pitch inspections are also scheduled for tomorrow morning at Victoria Park and Grant Street, before the Buckie v Cove and Clach v Rothes fixtures.
Buckie Th v Cove Rangers
On-loan midfielder Sam Robertson is unavailable for Buckie as he cannot play against his parent club Cove. Lewis Mackinnon is suspended, while Kevin Fraser, Sam Urquhart, John McLeod, Sean Wood and Craig Cowie are all out injured.
Cove boss John Sheran has a full squad to choose from, apart from the injured Sam Burnett.
Clach v Rothes
Clach face Rothes at Grant Street and they remain without Martin Callum, John Campbell, David McGurk, Ian Penwright with long term injuries. James Beeston is working, Ally Stark's loan spell has ended and Blair Lawrie and Lukasz Geruzel are on holiday. Trialists and youngsters are likely to fill the bench for the home side.
Rothes boss Steven MacDonald has a full squad available with the return of Scott Davidson, Paul Macleod and Stephen Rennie to the visitors' squad.
Lossiemouth v Wick Academy
Lossie struck late to grab all three points at Fort William last weekend and they'll look to follow up that win at home to Wick. Harry Noble and Cammy Farquhar are the only absentees for the Coasters.
Wick have drawn their last two matches against Nairn and Keith and they will be hoping to extend the current six-point gap between the sides in the league table.
Turriff Utd v Keith
Two off-form sides meet at The Haughs where Turriff take on Keith. Neale Davidson, Leszek Nowosielski, Nikolas Wozniac, Allen Mackenzie, Adam Cross and David Booth all miss out for the home side. Louis Myers and Kevin Flett are also doubtful for the home side.
Andrew Smith misses out for the visitors through suspension. The Maroons will surely need to win this one to have any chance of getting out of the bottom six.
