Following a weekend break after new year, Saints get back league business with an away trip to Golspie. With five teams very much in contention for this season's league championship, St. Duthus will be aiming to keep the pressure on leaders Invergordon while title holders Golspie will be looking to climb up the table having played less games than their opponents.
The game will also serve as a dress rehearsal for the cup final on the 18th when the teams will meet again at Dudgeon Park in the finale of the Football Times Cup.
St. Duthus expect to have just a couple of absences to content with for the weekend, with Reece Paterson unavailable and Craig Munro serving a one match suspension. But manager Stuart Ross is looking forward to taking an otherwise full strength squad through for the crunch league tie.
The game kicks off at 1pm at King George V Park on Saturday. A pitch inspection may be required following overnight rainfall or frost.
