Breedon Highland League Cup Prelim Round
Strathspey Thistle v Formartine Utd
Strathspey Thistle and Formartine try again this weekend after last Saturday's match at Seafield Park was postponed. The home side will be without Ryan Mcleod for this one.
Visitors Formartine will be without the suspended Garry Wood, with the winners of tomorrow's tie facing a trip to Rothes in the next round.
Brora Rangers v Buckie Thistle
It could be the biggest match of the Highland League season so far as leaders Buckie make the trip to face second place Brora at Dudgeon Park. The home side will be without the injured Joe Malin and Paul Brindle, while Ross County goalkeeper Ross Munro has extended his loan spell until the end of the season.
A win for the Jags tomorrow would put them nine points clear of their opponents with a game in hand, and possibly out of reach of the Cattachs. Andy Low, Andrew Skinner and Kai Ross all remain out for the visitors.
Clach v Lossiemouth
Clach and Lossie meet at Grant Street, with only two places and three points separating the two sides in the league table. Martin Callum, Colin Maclean, Scott Maclean, Ian Penwright and Matthew Grant are all out injured for the homesters and Blair Lawrie is unavailable due to work commitments. Stuart Leslie returns to the squad.
Lossie continue their search for a new manager after the resignation of Charlie Charlesworth and interim boss Stuart Cameron is without Shawn Scott and Ryan Farquhar, who are both suspended.
Deveronvale v Fraserburgh
Steven Davidson is suspended for Deveronvale and misses the visit of his old club Fraserburgh to Princess Royal Park. Scott Fraser, Kevin Adams and Lukas Krobot are likely to remain out for the Banff side.
Dean Cowie is still on the injured list for Broch, who recorded a superb win over Brora Rangers last time out. The club were further boosted by the news that Peterhead midfielder Marc Lawrence has extended his loan spell until the end of the season.
