Turriff have “done their homework” for Aberdeen University says manager Ross Jack.
Highland League Turra host the student side at the Haughs tonight in the Aberdeenshire Shield second round.
Jack, pictured, is eager for his men to make their mark in what he called “a prestige tournament”.
The club have won the competition in two of the last four years, also finishing as runners-up once within that time span.
Jack expects a difficult game from Aberdeen Uni but he hopes his side can master the students’ game plan.
He said: “We have done our homework on them.
“We will have to work really hard to beat them.”
Turriff have won their last two games, including a 1-0 victory over rivals Fraserburgh.
And Jack wants to extend that going in a competition he values very highly.
He said: “It’s a prestige tournament and we will do everything we can to do well in it.
“We’ve won it before and we would like to get it back again.”
