Both sides take three league wins in a row into their league meeting at Mosset Park.

The Cans, who recently sold winger Andy Macrae to Brora Rangers, have defeated Fort William, Turriff and Huntly in their last three outings.

Vale have polished off Turriff. Strathspey and Lossiemouth to take maximum points over the same period of games.

The top match of the day sees second-placed Fraserburgh at home to fourth-placed Inverurie Locos.

Broch are the only undefeated side in the league while Locos have the form striker in Chris Angus, who has netted 12 goals in their last nine games.

If Locos loses, Rothes could overtake them into fourth place and gain a measure of revenge for their Scottish Cup defeat against the Harlaw Park side last week.

Rothes are at home to Clach in a league match brought forward a week. the Speysiders should welcome back striker Steven Anderson but captain Jamie Duff is struggling to make it.

Keith haven't won in seven league and cup matches since the start of September, and are desperate to end that run when they welcome Strathspey Thistle to Kynoch Park.

The Maroons could welcome back Kieran Yeats and Jamie McAllister, Michael Selfridge is free of suspension but Ryan Robertson serves a one-game ban earned by his red card at Fraserburgh last week.

Leaders Buckie Thistle will aim to bounce back from their Scottish Cup loss at Bonnyrigg Rose in front of the TV cameras.

Jags should be too strong for hosts Huntly, whose recent revival was ended by a home loss to Forres last week.

Lossiemouth have the chance to climb off bottom spot when they take on Turriff at Grant Park.
