A Highland League fixtures switch will divert Buckie Thistle’s title challenge to Lossiemouth tonight.

The wet weather has once again rendered Jags’ Victoria Park pitch unplayable for the midweek clash against Brora Rangers.

For the second time this season, Buckie have earned a helping hand from Moray neighbours Lossie.

The Brora clash has been switched to the Coasters’ Grant Park ground, just as it was for Jags’ home game against Fraserburgh in February.

It is the second of a six-game logjam of Buckie fixtures in a 12-day period.

They won 3-0 at Keith on Monday night, and host Deveronvale on Saturday before a double header against Strathspey Thistle next Monday and Wednesday, and a home clash against Keith to finish their league campaign a week on Saturday.

Leaders Brechin City are currently six points ahead of Buckie, who have two games in hand.

The Glebe Park side pay a visit to Keith tonight, assuming Kynoch Park survives a rainy afternoon.

The match passed a morning pitch inspection but a further test of the conditions will be held later this afternoon in light of worsening weather.

Clach host Inverurie Locos and Formartine United welcome Wick Academy to North Lodge Park in the night’s other two fixtures.
