Brora Rangers boss Steven Mackay has warned his players against the danger of complacency as they bid to get 2020 off to a winning start.
The Cattachs have won seven league matches on the spin and sit three points clear at the summit with a game in hand ahead of today’s trip to Huntly.
Mackay said: “We have a full squad to choose from with Colin Williamson back from suspension. That gives me a nice selection headache.
“Trips to Huntly have tended to be tough, although we won 6-0 on our last visit.
“We are playing well and scoring lots of goals but we can’t be complacent and go there expecting things to happen.”
Deveronvale boss Steve Dolan admits there is no room for sentiment when his side host Clachnacuddin this afternoon.
The Grant Street Park side are in action for the first time since a fire on Christmas Eve caused major damage to their home ground.
Dolan, whose side defeated Formartine 3-0 on their last outing, said: “It wasn’t nice to hear what had happened. Hopefully they can get that sorted out quickly.
“We played them last month up there and we were lucky to go in 2-1 up at the break before going on to win 4-1.”
Inverurie Locos received a boost ahead of today’s trip to Nairn County with the news that defender Eric Watson has agreed a contract extension until the summer of 2021.
Elsewhere, Fraserburgh will look to stretch their unbeaten league run to five games when they host Turriff, while Keith meet Forres Mechanics at Kynoch Park.
Lossiemouth could move level on points with Strathspey with a win against the Jags this afternoon.
