The full-forward scored four goals last weekend as they prepare to travel to champions Newtonmore tomorrow.

MacRae (28) says while it was their best performance of the season so far, the team knows they have to be more consistent.

“We played the way we know that we can against Lochaber.

“But we are not getting carried away as we know that it is only one game, but it was good everything came together.

“We had a few key players missing at the start of the year, but as long as we stay injury free I think we could go and have good season.”

Victory at Newtonmore could see Kinlochshiel move level on points with second place Lovat and two points behind leaders Kingussie.

MacRae says his team are capable of challenging for the league title.

“Kyles Athletic, Kingussie, Lovat and Newtonmore are all looking good, the title could be anyones.

“A few weeks ago everyone was writing us off but we have only lost a couple of games and things can turn around quickly.

“It only takes a couple of results, it is about who keeps their nerve.

“We have gone out of the cup competitions we’ve played in but we can focus on the league and on the Camanachd Cup.

“We will plod away, that is what we did when we won the league in 2017. Its not over until it is over, even the teams at the front can be caught.”

Caberfeidh are also in action tomorrow as they head to Lochaber looking to move out of the relegation zone.

The Strathpeffer outfit lost a seven-goal thriller against Oban Camanachd 4–3 on Saturday.

However Cabers boss Jodi Gorski will go into the game confident they can record another win over Lochaber after beating them 3-2 in the MacTavish Cup.
