Formartine Utd v Clach
Formartine were no match for champions Buckie last weekend and they'll look to return to winning ways at home to Clach. Jevan Anderson, Scott Henry and Jonny Crawford all missed the trip to Victoria Park and boss Kris Hunter will hope they're available to bolster the back line.
Clach are without John Campbell, David McGurk and Liam Shewan, but Stuart Leslie, Daniel Maclennan and Michael Finnis are available again and return to the squad.
Forres Mechanics v Cove Rangers
Forres followed up their draw at Rothes last Saturday by going nap against the Speysiders in the North of Scotland Cup in midweek. They face a huge test against unbeaten league leaders Cove Rangers and remain without Jordan Milne , Ryan Stuart and Jordan Wardrope. Graeme Grant is also a doubt with a knee problem.
Cove continued their superb start to the season with a comfortable win over second-placed Huntly in the Aberdeenshire Cup on Wednesday night. They are still without Johnny Smith and Ryan Stott for the trip to Mosset Park.
Fort William v Strathspey Th
Fort recorded their first win of the season with a comprehensive victory over a young Elgin City outfit in the North of Scotland Cup during the week. Farquhar Macrae and Danny Highet both miss the bottom of the table clash with Strathspey with hamstring injuries.
Strathspey lost to a late goal at Lossiemouth last weekend after leading twice and they'll look to get their first league points on the board at Claggan Park.
Fraserburgh v Brora Rangers
Fraserburgh are in fine form and continued their unbeaten run against Cove when a late Marc Dickson effort earned them a point at Harlaw Park. Boss Mark Cowie has a full squad to choose from for the visit of Brora Rangers to Bellslea.
Brora bounced back to winning ways against Clach in the cup in midweek and they will travel without Gavin Morrison, who is suspended after his red card in the defeat to Inverurie Locos.
