Team news: Martin MacDonald and Tony Wallace remain County’s main injury problems as they both continue their recoveries from knee injuries. However, the visitors will be boosted by the return of Gregg Main from suspension. Conor Gethins played through a minor injury in last weekend’s win over Fort William but should be fit to lead the line for Nairn in this one. Andrew Hardwick continues his loan at Fort William.
One to watch: Gary McGowan. The experienced winger has enjoyed success at Deveronvale, Huntly and Formartine United previously in his career and is continuing that run at his present side, Turriff United. If the wide man is on form then the full back he is up against will have a busy day in store and will have to be at the top of their own game to keep the former Inverness CT starlet quiet. He netted the opener when these two sides met in the corresponding fixture last season.
