Ross Sutherland are facing a must-win bottom of the table clash at Moray after losing 20–15 to Aberdeenshire in Invergordon.

Despite picking up a losing bonus point at the Naval Grounds, the Stags remain eight points behind the Elgin outfit albeit with a game in hand.

With only the bottom team being relegated from Caledonia North Two, head coach John Mann says victory is vital.

“It’s a big one as its eighth versus seventh,” says Mann.

“Moray are eight points ahead and we have a game in hand.

“But a week ago we were chasing Banff but with one win they have jumped up to fifth.

“So it is gung-ho chasing down Moray, it is a big game and we’re going into it fairly confident.

“Four points is a must, five would be a luxury.”
