Wick Academy will be targeting back-to-back victories in the Highland League for the first time this season when they welcome Huntly to Harmsworth Park on Saturday.

The Scorries are looking to build on their dramatic 2-1 home win against Inverurie Locos last weekend.

That result put Academy back up to 12th in the table, while Huntly are third after their impressive start to the campaign.

Wick manager Gary Manson said: "Huntly have had a really good start to the season and they are flying high at the moment. They're playing with confidence and they've got some good attacking players, so it will be a tough game, there's no doubt about that.

"But we'll go into it in high spirits and we're looking for back-to-back wins which we haven't done this season yet."

Midfielder Marc Coghill is likely to return to the Wick squad.

Highland League fixtures for Saturday, November 11: Brechin City v Clachnacuddin; Formartine United v Brora Rangers; Forres Mechanics v Banks O' Dee; Fraserburgh v Nairn County; Inverurie Locos v Buckie Thistle; Lossiemouth v Keith; Strathspey Thistle v Deveronvale; Turriff United v Rothes; Wick Academy v Huntly (3pm).
