The William Hill Scottish Cup starts for the club tomorrow with Lowland League side Selkirk visiting Station Park for the second time in four years. Everything you need to know ahead of the visit of the Souters is in the preview below:

Team news: Midfield pairing Gregg Main and Wayne Mackintosh will miss out for Nairn as they are both attending a wedding. Callum Maclean is a doubt with the knock he sustained in the North of Scotland Cup semi final win at Forres Mechanics a week-and-a-half ago. Calum Antell is available to play in goal despite a one-game Highland League suspension hanging over him but Martin MacDonald and Tony Wallace are both still out with knee injuries. Andrew Hardwick is on loan to Fort William.

One to watch: Garry O’Connor. Selkirk pulled off a coup convincing the former Hibernian, Lokomotiv Moscow and Birmingham City striker to join the club after he was released by Greenock Morton. Still only 31 years old, the one-time Scotland striker still has time left to work his way back into the full time game at a decent level. He has proved to be an inspired signing by the Souters by rolling his sleeves up and grabbing the goals which will make him their main attacking threat in this tie.
