Match Preview | Lossiemouth v Brechin City
City are Lossiemouth-bound for the second time in as many months tomorrow afternoon - this time on league duty.
The two sides met in the Highland League Cup at Grant Park at the start of December, with City running out 2-0 winners to progress to the semi-final.
City were out of action last weekend due to a waterlogged pitch at Glebe Park, resulting in the postponement of the clash against Fraserburgh. Lossiemouth, meanwhile, picked up their first league win since October, scoring two late goals to record a 3-1 victory over bottom side Strathspey Thistle.
City will be without the suspended Ewan Loudon while Euan Spark continues to miss out with an ankle injury. Otherwise, Manager Andy Kirk should have the rest of his squad available for selection.
Manager Andy Kirk commented, "It was a disappointment to have the game off last week - we had a strong team ready to go but unfortunately the pitch was waterlogged. It's unfortunate but we can't control the weather.
"Buckie, Brora and Fraserburgh are all winning games and the challenge for us is to keep winning and performing well. Any slip up will cause you a problem and credit to these sides who keep picking up results every week - we've got to do exactly the same thing and that's what we've done all season so far. Everyone has games to catch up and hopefully the weather can hold and keep the games on so we can have a strong finish to the season."
Kick off is 3pm. Admission prices at Grant Park are £10 for adults and £5 for concessions.

Lossiemouth 0-2 Brechin City - 3rd December 2022
You only have to go back to the start of last month for the last meeting between the sides at Grant Park. City ran out comfortable winners in a Highland League Cup 2nd round tie against a Lossie side that had been re-instated in the competition due to an administrative error from Nairn County in the previous round. Grady McGrath gave City the lead on the stroke of half time before Fraser MacLeod ensured City's progression with another goal mid-way through the second half.
