LOVAT will look to continue their winning start to shinty’s Premiership season when they face champions Kingussie at the top of the table clash at The Dell.

The Kiltarlity outfit have got their season off to a perfect start as they won their first two matches of the campaign.

After a 3-2 win over Glenurquhart on the opening day of the season, they came out on top with a 4-3 win against Caberfeidh in Strathpeffer last Saturday.

Kingussie are top of the table on goal difference as they have yet to concede a goal.

A 1-0 victory over Kinlochshiel was followed by a 2-0 win against Glenurquhart at Drumnadrochit last week.
