Team news: Gregg Main recovered from the knock he sustained against Forres Mechanics on Saturday to make an appearance from the bench in the comprehensive midweek win away at Strathspey Thistle. Michael Morrison was also on the bench in that match and the club captain remains in contention for a return from injury in this trip to one of his former clubs. Wayne Mackintosh is going to be out for months rather than weeks with a knee cartilage injury which has required surgery. Ross Naismith is back after missing the win on Wednesday because of work commitments but John Cameron may miss this one due to work, Martin MacDonald is still out injured and Andrew Hardwick is on loan to Fort William.
One to watch: Neil McLean. The full back or midfielder remains a threat for the Locos and has been for over a decade. Whether it is marauding down the right flank either from full back or a more advanced role or dictating play and knocking about neat little passes in the middle of the park, the one-time Scotland semi-pro captain is a class act and keeping him quiet will be a pivotal part of Nairn's game plan if they are to emerge from Harlaw Park with all three points.
