Clachnacuddin will look to go seven games unbeaten in the Highland League if they can avoid defeat against Deveronvale tomorrow.

Victory at Merkinch and if other results go their way could see the Lilywhites go second in the Highland League.

They are only two points behind Buckie Thistle in second place, who face a tough task at a resurgent Brora Rangers, and one point behind Inverurie Locos who will be heavy favourites to beat Fort William at Harlaw Park.

However, Clachnacuddin are enjoying their best form in years as they look to finish in the top half for the first time since 2013.

But manager Jordan MacDonald is only concerned about three points and will worry after full time on Saturday where that lands them.

“The teams that people thought we would be around we have managed to beat them,” said MacDonald.

“We just look at who we are playing on Saturday, we don’t look at who we are playing the next week or the week after, we are looking at Deveronvale next.”

MacDonald praised the ruthlessness of his Clach team as they went fourth in the Highland League after a 3-0 win at Keith.

Eachainn Miller opened the scoring before James Anderson’s double, to bring his tally to nine goals in eight games, earned them victory.

The Lilywhites are now undefeated in their last six matches in the Highland League as they are producing their best form for a number of years.

MacDonald is pleased with the performances and attitude from his squad, saying they are taking their chances when they are presented to them.

“The players deserve all the credit,” said MacDonald.

“They are the ones who are listening to what we are asking them to do.

“We are going well at the moment and long it may it continue. They have been absolutely outstanding since going back to the Wick Academy game where we drew 2-2.

“The week before we conceded five against Huntly and the response that we have had has been really good.

“They have taken on board about things that we have spoken about and things are going along nicely. We’re not going to shout from the rooftops though, we will just keep doing what we are doing.”
