Cabers capable of slaying Kings


By Will Clark


Caberfeidh manager Jodi Gorski says his team are capable of winning at league leaders Kingussie when the two teams meet in the MacAulay Cup second round.

The Strathpeffer outfit are heading into the cup tie in good form having won their last four matches in all competition and moved three points clear of the relegation zone.

But Gorski says Cabers will be facing their toughest match of the season when they head to The Dell tomorrow.

"We know that this will be our toughest game of the season so far.

"But we are in good form ourselves.

"Our best game of the season was when we beat Kinlochshiel 6–3 but since then I don't think we have played as well.

"We haven't been as we could be and we have been doing everything a bit slower than normal. We will not get away with that on Saturday."

Despite saying Caberfeidh have been player slower in recent games, Gorski says his team are still playing to acceptable standard but need to pick up the pace.

"Our team have been playing fine," he said.

"But I believe they could be playing a lot better."

He admits Caberfeidh will be underdogs tomorrow at Kingussie but believes his team can cause an upset.

"Kingussie have been top of the league not just for a week or two. They have been top for most of the season so far.

"Anyone can go top of the league for the first two weeks of the season, but you have to be a good team to stay up there for as long as they have.

"But I don't think it would be a giant killing if we won due to the form we are in."

Declan Wilson and James Macleod will be out of the trip to Badenoch but could feature in the second team's game against Inverness in North Division One.

Kinlochshiel are mourning the death of former player Innes Macrae who died aged 66.

During his playing career he was known as a powerful man renowned for his physical strength and speed but probably most of all for his sportsmanship on and off the field.

Kinlochshiel face Inveraray in the Premiership following their 3–2 victory over Glasgow Mid-Argyll in the Camanachd Cup second round and will face Oban in the quarter final.
