After the disappointment of conceding a last-minute goal against Thurso in a 3-2 defeat last Saturday, the Athletic boss is anxious to register a much needed win against Bunillidh.

Athletic thrashed Bunillidh 7–1 in their opening match of the season in Inverness back in September and will be odds-on favourites to beat a Helmsdale side yet to pick up a point. Athletic are chasing a first win on the road.

“We are looking forward to the game,” Golabek said.

“It would be good to bounce back after last week’s defeat but we are not taking anything for granted.”

Athletic will be without Russell MacIntyre and Dean Allison. The Inverness side are also on the verge of losing goalkeeper Ryan Hunter to Clachnacuddin.

Golabek said: “Ryan played for Clach against Brora.

He has been training with Clachnacuddin this week. They want to sign him and he wants to go so it looks like we are going to lose him at some point.”

Sandy Stephen is expected to take over in goal for Saturday’s match.

St Duthus return to league business with a home match against Bonar Bridge.

Saints will be anxious to get back to winning ways after they lost 3-1 against Orkney in the Jock MacKay Cup final last Saturday.

In the other matches, the pick of the bunch should be the one between Golspie Sutherland and undefeated Thurso at King George V Park, while in Caithness Halkirk United host Orkney at Morrison Park.
