John McLeod wants to see Buckie back in groove

Buckie’s John McLeod.

Buckie Thistle striker John McLeod insists they have to bounce back against Fraserburgh tomorrow.

The Jags were thrashed 7-1 by Cove Rangers on Wednesday.

Tomorrow, the Broch travel to Victoria Park and McLeod says the Highland League champions need to turn things around.

He said: “It was a hard one to take, Cove are a good side who moved the ball well and there’s not much more you can say about it.

“It’s a hard one but the best one to bounce back in is against Fraserburgh, and we’ll have to do that.

“We just have to take it one game at a time now and try to rebuild.”

Fraserburgh assistant manager James Duthie said: “I’m sure Graeme Stewart will be looking for a reaction.

“It will be a very difficult game, like it was when we played them earlier this season.”

League leaders Cove face Keith at Harlaw Park and striker Mitch Megginson wants to see their fine form continue.

He said: “It’s another big game. They didn’t have a game on Wednesday so they’ll be fresh. “We played a difficult game, we just need to regroup and go again on Saturday.

“Every game we aim to get three points and if you can keep doing that you’ll be up near the top of the league at the end.

“They’re a sticky team, we know they will be defensive, try to sit and counter us.”

Elsewhere, third-placed Inverurie Locos look to continue their fine form when they head for Inverness to face Clachnacuddin.

Huntly return to action after being free for the last two weekends with a game against Wick Academy at Christie Park.
