Buckie Thistle's last fixture at Deveronvale was called off due to positive cases in the Jags camp and the situation has not got better for the Victoria Park club, meaning their game at home to Rothes is off.

Similarly an outbreak in Lossiemouth's squad has led to the plug being pulled on their home match against Strathspey Thistle.

The position is the same for bottom club Fort William who have a number of positive cases and their game at Brora Rangers has been shelved.

However, with Rothes and Brora able to play, they have rearranged a fixture postponed from December 11 and will meet at MacKessack Park on Monday.

Other matches still on at the moment include Forres Mechanics' trip to Clach and Keith's home derby with Huntly.
