Fraserburgh are the team with the most to gain as two of their title rivals go head to head this weekend but assistant manager James Duthie insists the Broch will be taking no notice of events at Mackessack Park.
Lossiemouth make the trip to Bellslea to face a Broch side sitting fourth in the table, nine points behind leaders Brora, but having played two games less. With Brora facing third-placed Rothes something has to give but Duthie says the Fraserburgh players’ only focus is the Coasters.
He said: “We’re looking no further than ourselves and making sure we produce a performance.
“There is no point worrying about games elsewhere as we can’t influence what happens in those matches.”
Jamie Beagrie is absent for the Broch as he is working offshore.
Buckie Thistle manager Graeme Stewart has urged his side to be ready to match Deveronvale’s workrate when the Banffers make the trip to Victoria Park.
He said: “They are so fit and strong that sometimes they can outrun you, so we know it is going to be a very difficult game.”
Formartine United bid to make it three wins in a row when Kris Hunter takes his Turrriff United side to North Lodge Park today while Keith, whose game against Lossie was postponed last week, will be hoping to continue where they left off in their 4-1 win against Forres on January 4 when they travel to Nairn County.
Huntly bid to build on their point at Inverurie Locos last week when they welcome Strathspey Thistle to Christie Park while Forres Mechanics will be aiming to bring their four-game losing run to an end when they play Wick Academy at Harmsworth Park.
