It is a lonely looking fixture list for Inverness Craig Dunain in the Caledonia North Four this weekend as they go on the road in the only match in the division.

The Autumn internationals currently taking place mean that much of the regional leagues take a break for the next few weeks, which also gives an opportunity to catch up on matches that had been postponed during the opening stretch of the calendar.

Last weekend only one match in Caley North Four was played because of Covid cases, but this time around there is only meant to be one match taking place as Craig Dunain travel to Aberdeen University Medics.

It has been almost exactly a month since ICD’s men were last in action, losing 34–7 away at Deeside on October 9, while the Medics did play and were victorious the following week, overcoming Fraserburgh 57–7.

Craig Dunain have not won on the road this season.

They will, however, be hoping to break that duck as they can move up a spot in the league table with a positive result.

It is a similarly scarce fixture list in Caledonia North Two, where Highland’s Raptors are in one of two games due to be played.

In their case, it is a home match against Aberdeen Grammar 2nds that was originally supposed to be played on October 21, but was postponed due to Covid cases in the visiting camp.

Highland will be heavy favourites to come away with all five points against a team who sit at the bottom of the table having won just one of their four matches to date.

From Grammar’s point of view, their games in hand over every other team in the league could prove crucial to their chances of avoiding relegation at the end of the campaign, but the Raptors will have no sympathy for them tomorrow as they look to take one step closer towards getting their hands on the league title once again.
