Team news: Robbie Duncanson is in advanced negotiations to leave Nairn County and will not feature in this match having most likely pulled on the yellow jersey for the final time in last night's win against Nairn St Ninian. Skipper Wayne Mackintosh also misses out as he is on holiday while one of the clutch of trialists who featured, Martin Sanderson, is also unavailable. Calum Riddell, Gary Kerr and Jamie Mackay have been invited to feature again as trialists while youngsters Callum Ednie, Jack Maclean and Matty Macleod are vying to be included from the start but fellow under-20s player Craig Munro is not available.
One to watch: Gordon McNab. The attacking midfielder won a Highland League championship at Forres Mechanics and was the North Region Juniors Division 2 Player of the Year the season before last after an outstanding campaign at Nairn St Ninian. Having come through the Ross County ranks before featuring for Clachnacuddin prior to his title-winning stint at Mosset Park, he is now the fulcrum of Jordan MacDonald's North Region Super League side and possesses the ability to prize open the County defence in this one.
