Team news: Tony Wallace is expected to be out for another four to six weeks as he continues his recovery from the knee injury sustained in the North of Scotland Cup quarter final win at Strathspey Thistle earlier this month. Martin MacDonald has recommenced light training after he missed the last three games also with a knee injury. Wayne Mackintosh is still working his way back from a long term groin problem.
One to watch: Dennis Wyness. The veteran striker did it at the highest level of Scottish football for over a decade with Aberdeen, Inverness CT (two spells), Hearts and St Mirren. He has dropped down the leagues over the last five years featuring for Dumbarton and Peterhead before moving to Victoria Park for his first stint in the Highland League after ending a three-year spell with Elgin City. The 38-year-old adds experience to a developing Buckie team and has already proved that he will be a valuable addition to Graeme Stewart’s squad.
