Scottish Cup Fourth Round
Partick Thistle v Formartine Utd
Formartine face the biggest game in the club's history when they travel to Glasgow to take on Premiership side Partick Thistle in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.
Boss Kris Hunter may opt for a more defensive formation against the in-form Jags, who have spent a week in La Manga during the SPL winter break for warm weather training. Ryan Scully, Stuart Bannigan and Gary Fraser are unavailable for the home side.
Brora Rangers v Deveronvale
Brora take on Deveronvale at Dudgeon Park and they will be without the injured Joe Malin, Gavin Morrison and Paul Brindle. John Pickles is also unavailable, but new singing from Ross County Kyle Macleod is included in the squad.
Vale make the long trip north minus defenders Scott Fraser, Kevin Adams and Lukas Krobot. Graeme Watt is also doubtful and will have a late fitness test.
Clach v Rothes
Clach have several players unavailable for the visit of Rothes, with Paul Smith, Duncan Jones, Mark Kennedy and Stuart Leslie unavailable; and James Beeston, Matthew Grant, Martin Callum and Ian Penwright all out injured.
Steven MacDonald takes charge of Rothes for the first time and assistant manager Grant Munro could make his debut for the club at Grant Street.
Fort William v Forres Mechanics
Fort William welcome back Barna Tot, Iain MacLellan and Michael Ellis for the home clash with Forres, while new signing Michael Corbett could make his debut.
Scott Moore , Jordan Wardrope, Graham Fraser, Owen Paterson and Fraser Forbes are all missing for the visitors, while there is also a doubt over Kyle Scott.
Huntly v Buckie Thistle
Huntly are boosted by this week's capture of David Donald on a two and a half year contract, as they prepare to face league leaders Buckie at Christie Park. Martin MacDonald is the home side's only absentee through injury.
Buckie went six points clear at the top of the table with a comprehensive win over Lossie last weekend. Kai Ross, Andy Low and Andrew Skinner remain out injured for the visitors.
