IT IS Highland League (Morganti) Cup quarter final day tomorrow and they do not come much bigger than a trip to Grant Street Park and a local derby match against Clachnacuddin. Tensions are sure to be running high and tempers are sure to fray in a tie that will not be for the faint-hearted. Full preview below:

Team news: Sean Webb returns to the County squad after missing the draw with Wick Academy in midweek due to work commitments. Wayne Mackintosh is still out with a knee injury, as is Martin MacDonald and Tony Wallace. Adam Naismith, Ross Naismith and John Cameron may have work commitments while Andrew Hardwick is still on loan at Fort William.

One to watch: Blair Lawrie. The creative midfielder scored an exquisite goal at Station Park when these two clubs last met in September to complete a comeback from 2-0 down to level the game again. Clach then went on to lead the match before two late Conor Gethins penalties won a topsy-turvy encounter for County. The attacker seems to relish these occasions and is always a standout performer for the Lilywhites and it is sure to be no different in tomorrow's high-stakes clash.
