The hosts, rooted to the foot of the Breedon Highland League, welcome top guns Buckie Thistle.

The Jags are flying and three points clear at the summit of the table following their 3-1 win over Forres Mechanics at the weekend.

Thistle will be looking to record their 10th win in 11 games to maintain their advantage.

Joe Russell's side, with just one win all season, will be desperate to pull off a shock result in front of their own fans.

Scott Adams could be pushing for a starting place in the Buckie side following his two goal performance from the bench at the weekend, including a stunning free-kick.

Brora Rangers, who won the North of Scotland Cup last weekend, travel to Keith and will be looking to maintain the pressure on Buckie at the top.

After a four goal defeat at Rothes on Saturday, the Maroons will be looking to try and breach a visiting defence that has only leaked four goals in nine games.

Elsewhere, Huntly will be looking to build on their first win of the season at home to Wick Academy on Saturday, when they play host to title-chasing Formartine Utd.

Forres Mechanics' boss Charlie Rowley was pleased with his side's performance in defeat at Buckie and the bright note was the return of striker Lee Fraser after 18 months on the sidelines with a knee injury as he grabbed his side's goal. After lasting more than 60 minutes at the weekend, Rowley may still be looking to nurse his star striker back to full match fitness.

The Mechanics welcome an improving Fort William to Mosset Park.

Deveronvale boss Steve Dolan will be hoping his side can finally get a result that their performances deserve after a poor start to the season when they make the short journey to the Haughs to face derby rivals Turriff Utd.

Nairn County are at home to Clach, while Strathspey Thistle take on Inverurie Locos.
