Today is going to be a big game against the league leaders Buckie Thistle but we’ve proved before against the likes of Formartine and Brora we can compete again them and it doesn’t faze us and we welcome the challenge and will look forward to the game.

Looking at the quality they’ve got and the quality we’ve got I see no reason why we can’t go on any win the game.

After missing four games recently due to being cup-tied then suspended we’ll now have Kieran Adams returning to the squad so he’ll be back in contention so we’ll see how he’s feeling at training and take a decision.

It’s good to have a number of good defensive options but it’s not just in defence its right throughout the team where we’ve got competition for places.
Gary McGowan missed the win over Fort William last week while Dennis Wyness and Robbie Duncanson can also play further upfield and we’ve also got Elliot Duff who was on the bench last week who can also score goals and the same goes for Alex Thoirs whose also been missing that can come in. there’s a number of players there and we know that one day everything is going to click and somebody’s going to feel our wrath.

On the injury front we are hoping that Paul Napier has recovered from his recent injury spell, he’s a player who knows a lot about today’s opponent and depending how he’s done at training he could make the squad.

Good defensive display - fine to have a settled back four and a good penalty save from John after a soft award.

Another goal for Ross Still who could be a candidate for our young player of the year this season

Hopefully this will a more regular feature. Not wholly convincing last week but 'no goals conceded' can't be contested.

Could someone let Andy know that Elliot has gone ...

We’ve had  number of tough fixtures lately against teams at the top end of the table and today is not different when he welcome Highland League Cup holder Brora Rangers for today’s quarter-final tie. You want to play against the big teams and Brora will be a massive game for us, cup games keep your season alive and Brora are a very good team as we know like Formartine who we faced on Wednesday so we expect a similar performance against Brora. We’ll got for and be difficult to beat and get forward when we get the ball. Ross Tokely watched us himself on Wednesday, obviously Andy and I weren’t here the last time we played Brora but there’s a lot of talent in the dressing room and hopefully we’re now building on the confidence.

Wednesday night was a big result for us after the bad result against Cove Rangers and bar that game, results have been good since we came to the club. Andy and I said we take part of the blame for the Cove result and performance but since that game we’ve bounced back and look to take our recent form into today’s match.…

Not the worst draw
If we play like did at the Broch in the shield then we could have a good chance of making it through to the next round.

Huntly Co-Manager Mark Gray knows today's opponents Strathspey Thistle can't be underestimated despite being at the foot of the table.

The Jags have taken seven points off Huntly in their last three meetings.

Listen to the audio interview below to hear what Mark has to say ahead of today's game.…

We haven't beaten Clachnacuddin in the last six games at Huntly but some people thought we were expected to beat them... some peoples levels of expectation may be a little high.

To be fair to Strathspey their goalkeeper pulled off a number of good saves to keep the score down and those conditions were not the best for anyone to play in.
There was a lack of encouragement from our own support in the second half with our own players being on the end of criticism from our own support yet again.

I was not there but my take on this is that most supporters, given the club's significant investment in players in the summer, would have expected a win. When you look at our current five match league schedule, this is/was an opportunity to put significant points on the board. So in the context of a home defeat by Clach and a home draw with the bottom team in the league, the general support was unimpressed. So they booed the team, or more likely I suspect the team management.

Disappointing result played in poor weather conditions - not as disappointing as hearing some of our own fans booing the team at the end of the game
Plenty of chances in the first half but to be fair to Strathspey their goalkeeper had a number of good saves to keep it 2-1 at the break. The front players had a couple of chances into the second half but again Aitchison did well to keep out Robbie.
Their second took a bit of a cruel deflection.
