Audio Interviews: Cooper and Cowie

Fraserburgh thrashed Inverurie Locos 5-1 thanks in part to a double from Scott Henry.

After the match, reporter John Innes spoke to managers from both sides. Listen to the interviews below.

Reporter Andrew Raffan's match verdict can be read below:

Fraserburgh seized the initiative in a scrappy opening to the game, following up a previously threatening corner with a perfect delivery from Garry Harris to the back post. Rising above the surrounding defenders, Scott Henry aimed his header into the ground with the ball bouncing into the roof of the net having evaded a crowded goal- line.

The opportunity for an instant replay fell to Jordan Leyden as he stood over a free-kick on the edge of the box, but his tame swerving effort was comfortably saved by Peter Tait.

Team news for Saturday 25th March

Highland League

Brora Rangers v Formartine Utd

Match of the day is at Dudgeon Park where surely only a win will keep either Brora or Formartine in the title race. Paul Brindle is the only injury absentee for the home side.

Formartine are unbeaten in eleven league matches and have kept five clean sheets in a row, a win for the visitors would close the gap on their opponents to five points with three games in hand.

Deveronvale v Forres Mechanics
Liam Forbes returns to the Deveronvale squad for the visit of Forres to Princess Royal Park. Dan Smith, Graeme Watt, Zander Jack and Scott Fraser are all unavailable.

Callum Howarth  misses out for Forres with an ankle ligament problem, while Alan Pollock, Owen Paterson and Connor MacIver are all unavailable. Scott Moore returns from suspension. Meanwhile, the club announced today that midfielder Aaron McLean has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Lossiemouth in the summer.

Fort William v Rothes
Fort William quartet Ally Stark, Adam Porritt, Barna Tot and Michael Ellis return to the squad for their clash with Rothes at Claggan Park. Goalkeeper Douglas MacLennan suffered an injury in training and will miss the rest of the season.

Rothes pushed champions Cove all the way last weekend and they will still be without the suspended Ryan Macritchie tomorrow. Ben Cullen is away to America with the RAF until May, but Ian Macrae is fully fit again and returns to the squad.

Huntly v Buckie Thistle
Huntly face title chasing Buckie at Christie Park and they have Kieran Adams available again after serving his three-game ban. Martin MacDonald remains out long term.

The Jags remain at the top of the table after two good wins over Wick Academy. Andrew Skinner, Kai Ross and Sean Carroll are all out injured for the visitors.

Team news for Saturday 18th March

Buckie Thistle v Wick Academy (2pm) 

Buckie returned to the top of the table with a win over today's opponents last weekend and the Jags will be looking for a repeat performance today. Kai Ross and Andrew Skinner remain out with long term injuries. 

Wick will travel without the suspended Steven Anderson after his red card in last Saturday's encounter. 

Clach v Brora Rangers 

Clach take on title-chasing Brora at Grant Street and they'll be without the injured Martin Callum and Ryan MacDonald, Michael Finnis is suspended and Paul Smith unavailable. Matthew Grant, John Campbell, David McGurk and Stuart Leslie all return to the squad. 

Brora remain without Joe Malin and Paul Brindle through injury, as they look to bounce back from their Semi-Final defeat to Cove last time out. 

Formartine Utd v Deveronvale  

Formartine squeezed past Lossiemouth in midweek to continue their excellent form, Neil Gaul and Conor Gethins could start against Deveronvale after impressing from the bench on Wednesday night. 

Vale received a boost during the week with Liam Forbes agreeing an extension to his contract to June 2019. The visitors will hope to continue their return to form that saw them stage a superb comeback to beat Keith a fortnight ago. 

Huntly v Fort William 

Huntly face Fort William at Christie Park and they will be without Kieran Adams through suspension and Martin MacDonald with a long term injury. The club released young goalkeeper Grant Stephen at his own request this week, he had been on loan at Junior side Glentanar.  

Fort will be looking for the win that could take them off the bottom of the league table.
