In-form Peterhead aim to arrest a poor run of results against Stenhousemuir when the two relegated teams clash in League 2.

Fraserburgh will aim to stop Cove's winning start in the Highland League. John Sheran's men have an unblemished record so far going into the Harlaw Park fixture. The Broch have won three of their four matches. Formartine travel to reigning champions Buckie while Inverurie Locos make the long trip to Brora.

Wakefield's Adam Walker has been taken out of Scotland's extended squad for the rugby league World Cup after failing a drugs test.
