Recent snow and rain have rendered Rothes' MacKessack Park unplayable for tonight's match against bottom side Fort William.

Both clubs already face a glut of fixtures and the game has been rearranged for Tuesday, April 19 - beyond the end of the regulation season.

Christie Park is also waterlogged and tonight's game between Huntly and Formartine United is off.

The match has been rescheduled for next Wednesday, April 13.

Two matches are set to go ahead tonight.

Deveronvale play host to Clach while Forres Mechanics make the trip south to Grantown to take on Strathspey Thistle.
