ST DUTHUS will have to beat the Jock Mackay Cup holders Invergordon if they are to secure a place in the final and tomorrow they will have the chance to do just that.
Tomorrow's tie shall be the Saints' last home game of the season and with that in mind, they will be keen to keep intact their current unbeaten home run, having played seven games in a row without defeat.
Manager Stuart Ross is in bouyant mood ahead of what will be a big day for the Saints, who host their third annual Sportsmans Dinner in the evening.
"It will a tough game today, but with home advantage we must go into the game with belief and determination that we can come away with a result and give our supporters a cup final to look forward to."
"We are well prepared and all of the boys are buzzing for this one. Our performance against Invergordon in January has given us all the incentive we need to believe we can overcome the odds again."
League leaders Invergordon will be strong favourites for the tie, and with no noted absentees they are likely to be at full strength, having only last week secured the North Caledonian Cup with a win over Alness.
St Duthus, however, are looking at going into the game without Martyn Farquhar, Paul Beaton and Calum Neil who miss out due to other commitments. Meanwhile, Ben Bruce is likely to return along with Justin Rogers.
Pies, teas and coffee will be on sale during the game, along with a half time raffle.
