RESURGENT Huntly are the opponents for Nairn County as the Black and Golds go in search of their third successive victory when Ronnie Sharp takes his team to Christie Park. Huntly have away victories over Fraserburgh and Fort William under their belts from their last two fixtures as they come into form at the right time ahead of this meeting between the sides who sit 13th and 14th in the Highland League table with just one point currently separately the two teams. A flat performance at Turriff United three weeks ago disappointed Sharp on their last away outing as their previous impressive form on the road continued to turn with County now pointless on the road since Paul Macleod and Dylan Mackenzie bagged the goals to down Fort William in September having lost the last two away from Station Park. You can follow live coverage of the proceedings at Christie Park through NCFC Media on facebook.com/nairncountyfc and @NairnCounty on Twitter with team lines before the match starts, updates of all of the major talking points as they happen during the match, a report on the final whistle and reaction from the Nairn camp later in the evening. Meanwhile, a preview of the match is below: Date: Saturday November 5th 2016 Competition: Scottish Highland Football League Kick-off: 1500 Opponents: Huntly Manager: Mark Gray and Dougie Baxter Venue: Christie Park, Huntly Previous meeting: Huntly 2 Nairn County 2 March 19th 2016 Last time out: Nairn County 2 Lossiemouth 1; Fort William 2 Huntly 5 League position: Huntly 13th Nairn County 14th Form guides: Nairn County LLWDLW Huntly LLDLWW Team news: It is a depleted County squad that will make the trip to Christie Park with Calum Riddell ruled out due to the shoulder injury he sustained against Lossiemouth last weekend, Chris Moir unavailable and Jason Morganti still struggling to shrug off the ankle injury that saw him drop out of the team for last Saturday's match. Jamie Mackay is also still struggling for full fitness because of a hamstring concern and Willie Barron will not make the trip as he has work commitments. One the plus side though, there is a return for Ross Naismith, who is back in the squad after missing out seven days ago because of work commitments. One to watch: Dennis Wyness. The wily striker brings experience and knowhow to the developing Huntly team. The veteran front man has seen it and done it in Scottish football over spells with Aberdeen, Hearts, St Mirren, Dumbarton, Peterhead, Elgin City, Buckie Thistle and of course, two goals-laden periods with Inverness CT. His thirst for the game to continue to commit to Highland League football at the age of 39 remains and will be a positive influence on the players around about him in a Huntly side which is beginning to find its stride with two impressive wins in their last two outings. Match officials: Referee Chris Fordyce, Assistants Daniel Rae and Bob Inkster Weather forecast: Sunny intervals 5 degrees 19 mph wind Admission prices: Adults £8 Concessions £5 (two children under the age of 14 are admitted for free if they are accompanied by a paying adult).
