Buckie Thistle manager Graeme Stewart has called on side to step up against the teams around them in the Breedon Highland League.
The Jags – fifth in the table – face third-placed Brechin City at Glebe Park.
He said: “We probably have to take something from the game because we’ve messed up a couple of times.
“We slipped up against Rothes and Brora (lost both 2-0) and didn’t take full points against Fraserburgh when we should have (2-2 draw).
“So we need to improve in these games because at the end of the season how you get on against the top five or six determines where you finish.
“We’re aware of that and hopefully we do get a result.”
Brechin have won their last four games and boss Andy Kirk said: “We’re starting to put things together a lot more.
“We’ve got a decent squad and we’re starting to play more consistently throughout the 90 minutes.
“We’re in a good place and we’re trying to improve week by week.
“It’s a new squad and there have been challenges along the way, but we’re getting there.
“We’ve got to continually strive week after week to win games to keep us challenging where we want to be.”
