Huntly players stay focused for Lossiemouth visit

Huntly striker Michael Ewen says the players can’t be distracted by the Christie Park management team leaving during the week.

Co-manager Andy Roddie and Tommy Wilson left the Black and Golds on Tuesday after turning down new contracts.

Huntly were set to face Formartine United in the Aberdeenshire Shield on Wednesday but it was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. Tomorrow, they take on Lossiemouth at Christie Park.

Charlie Duncan and Charlie Ferries will be in interim charge tomorrow and hitman Ewen is in upbeat mood.

He said: “I don’t think a lot of folk saw that (Roddie and Wilson’s departure) coming. “But we’ll prepare properly and I’m still confident that with the team we’ve got we should be able to get through it.

“The lads should be 100% professional with their attitude towards the game.”

Cove Rangers’ trip to Fort William could yet be postponed due to Claggan Park being waterlogged.

But if it goes ahead boss John Sheran wants his league leaders to show the right attitude to see off Fort.

He said: “We need to make sure we play at the right level, if you go there with the wrong attitude it can get you into trouble.”

Third-placed Fraserburgh, fresh from drawing Rangers in the Scottish Cup, look to keep up their fine form when Keith arrive at Bellslea.
