Buckie down to bare bones for tricky trip to Strathspey

Highland League current champions Buckie Thistle

Reigning Highland League champions Buckie Thistle face a tough game against a resurgent Strathspey Thistle at Victoria Park tonight without winger Stuart Taylor, who is suspended after being sent off in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Fraserburgh.

Jags manager Graeme Stewart said: “It is disappointing as we probably should have won at the Broch on a day when the referee had shocker.

“He sent Stuart off for two bookings – neither of them justified, in my opinion. He also gave three penalties. The first two, one for either side, were justified but their second one was never a penalty. Daniel Bell punched the ball, their guy fell over, and the referee awarded a penalty. It was ridiculous.

“As a result of Stuart’s suspension, added to our long list of injuries, we will have only two substitutes on the bench for what will be a difficult game against Strathspey.”

Strathspey will be without suspended midfielder Nicholas Mochan but captain James McShane comes back into the side.

Clach and Brora Rangers will both look to bounce back after suffering away defeats at the weekend when they meet at Grant Street Park in Inverness tonight.

Formartine could hand a debut to new goalkeeper Kevin Main when they face Forres Mechanics at North Lodge Park while the Can-Cans will be without their regular number one, Stuart Knight, who is working in Caithness.

Huntly manager Charlie Charlesworth will make a late selection due to injury concerns head of the derby against Inverurie Locos at Christie Park.

Charlesworth said: “I’m waiting for decisions on two or three players before I can plan.

“Missing from Saturday is Cammy Booth and Ryan Stewart whilst Reece Mc-Keown has ankle ligament damage from that game.

“Martin Charlesworth is making a gradual return after playing for an hour on Saturday.

“Gary McGowan and Michael Clark are suspended and Matty Macdonald is ineligible to play against his parent club.”

Locos manager Neil Cooper said: “It’s a derby but we will prepare as we normally do for any fixture away from home.

“We are looking to continue the form we have shown of late and we are at full strength with the return of Joe McCabe.”

Keith will face Deveronvale at Kynoch Park without left back Ryan Spink (calf) and central defender Jason Thornton, who is also on the injury list.

Nairn County will miss midfielders Jack McLean (calf) and Adam Naismith, who has work commitments, for the Station Park clash with Rothes.

Spanish forward Inaki Fernandino-Soto also misses out through work commitments.
