Turriff United manager Ross Jack hopes his side can make home advantage count when in-form Cove Rangers visit the Haughs tonight in part of a cup double-header for the sides.
A place in the final of the Morrison Motors Aberdeenshire Shield will go to the winners tonight before the two teams meet in Turriff again on Saturday in the semi-finals of the Breedon Aggregates Highland League Cup.
Jack, whose players are also hot on the heels of champions Brora Rangers in the Highland League title race, insists Turriff are ready for their two important matches.
He said: “We’re scoring goals and we’re playing well but we know the size of the task against Cove as they are one of the best teams in the league.
“It promises to be two great occasions. The fact we are at home for both is a bonus but it is up to us to make that advantage count.
“We’re having a good season but like every other club we want to end it with something to show for it.
“We have two chances to move closer to achieving that aim this week and we will do all we can to take them.”
