Game: Inverness Athletic FC v St Duthus FC (Macleod & MacCallum North Caledonian League)
Date: Saturday, November 3rd, 2018
Venue: Pavilion Park, Muir of Ord
Referee: Darren Munro
Assistant referees: TBC
BACK on the road this weekend, St Duthus visit Muir of Ord's Pavilion Park on Saturday for their return league encounter against Inverness Athletic.
On the back of last weekend's victory over Halkirk United, this game should serve as an excellent opportunity for Saints to put some more points on the board, having jumped above Thurso and Bunillidh in the table. A win tomorrow would see them start to break clear of the bottom back.
Manager Stuart Ross is keenly aware of the challenge ahead of his squad.
"We'll obviously be looking to keep momentum going following on from last week's impressive win against Halkirk. We've the added incentive of trying to put things right after Inverness came to Tain earlier this season and won. Tomorrow will be our chance to reverse that result."
"Make no mistake about it though, Inverness have started this season very well and they are where they are in the league table for good reason. We'll be going to Muir of Ord with a positive head on as we know we'll need to take the game to them if we want to come away with something."
Squad wise, St Duthus will be without Lewis Ross due work commitments but are generally expected to travel with a good size squad for the game.
Shane Carling's Inverness continue to strengthen and have added Clachnacuddin pair Calum Black and James Dingwall on loan and both are expected to be in the squad for tomorrow's game.
The game kicks off at the earlier time of 12.15pm.
