Forres Mechanics manager Charlie Rowley is confident his men can end their winless run in the Highland League.

The Mosset Park men suffered their fourth league defeat on the spin with a 4-1 reverse at Keith last Saturday.

Rowley’s side are without a win in five league games overall, having won seven of their previous eight games. The Forres boss said: “It is a really tough time for us just now.

“It is a combination of what is happening in both penalty boxes.

“We are not as clinical as we could be in attack and unfortunately conceding too many easy goals.

“We are positive enough to realise we will come through this spell and get back to winning ways.

“We are limited to what we can do in terms of making changes.

“We can maybe use the same personnel in different positions but we can’t make wholesale changes.

“We need to apply ourselves in the right manner and hopefully the results and confidence will return pretty quickly.”

The Forres boss accepts his side have their work cut out to get back to winning ways this weekend when third-place Fraserburgh visit Mosset Park.

The sides drew 3-3 at Bellslea in September.

Rowley said: “We have got the players to get back on track.

“We just need to work hard to put it all together on a Saturday.

“We know it is going to be a tough game this weekend against a really good Fraserburgh side.

“They have been very consistent this season but, for some reason, we have tended to play well against them.

“The games between the teams are usually very tight.

“I’m hoping that is the case again this Saturday.”

Defender Simon Allan could return for Forres this weekend.

But Ryan Farquhar (knee), Aaron Hamilton (ankle) and Callum Johnstone (groin) remain sidelined.
