Fraserburgh assistant manager James Duthie hopes, by looking after themselves, his team can keep up with the Highland League leaders.

The second-placed Broch meet Nairn County (12th) at home tomorrow.

The Bellslea Park men trail Cove by just three points and can close this gap, as Cove are playing in the Aberdeenshire Cup final this weekend.

Duthie expects a challenging encounter against Nairn though.

He said: “It will be a really tough game and they’ve had some good results this year.

“We struggled against them at home last year -– we drew 3-3 with them.

“They’re a young, fit side, who are hungry to do well.

“We’re trying to hang on to Cove’s coat-tails as best we can, because they’re looking really strong at the moment.

“But we’ll look after ourselves. We’ll do what the Broch do best – work hard.”

Fraserburgh will be missing injured pair Willie West (groin) and Ryan Sargent (back) for the visit of the Wee County.

However, Paul Young returns from suspension.
