But a meeting of two of the bottom six has been called off because of a Covid-19 positive test.

The Highland League say the game between Nairn County and Fort William is off due to the fact that Fort have "crossed the player unavailability threshold for Covid-19 positive test and self-isolation requirements."

Among tonight's other games is the meeting of the top two at Victoria Park.

Buckie Thistle, whose 100 per cent record was ended by a 2-0 defeat at Rothes on Saturday, take on new leaders Fraserburgh who have won all five league games so far.

Third-placed Formartine United visit sixth-placed Brechin City, while fourth plays seventh at Harlaw Park where Inverurie Locos entertain Rothes.

Huntly put their unbeaten start to the test at Deveronvale while Keith will aim to give new boss Craig Ewen his first win in charge when they welcome win-less Wick Academy to Kynoch Park.

Champions Brora Rangers have recovered after a shaky start and they host Forres Mechanics, who threw away a 2-0 lead to ten-man Clach on Saturday.

Clach make the trip to improving Lossiemouth while Strathspey Thistle look to make it three wins in a row when they head for Turriff United, who picked up their first point at Wick last weekend.
