The following Highland League and Cup matches have been postponed:
Highland League Cup First Round
Forres Mechanics v Deveronvale
Strathspey Th v Huntly
Turriff Utd v Wick Academy
Team news from the remaining matches:
Scottish Cup Fifth Round
Cove Rangers v Falkirk
Cove's 'home' tie against Championship side Falkirk goes ahead after an early pitch inspection at Harlaw Park. Boss John Sheran is likely to have a full squad to choose from as Cove look to continue a cup run that has already seen them reach the Fifth Round for the first time in their history.
Full-time Championship outfit Falkirk are in decent form having won four of their last five matches, including a good victory at Livingston in the last round.
Kilmarnock v Brora Rangers
Brora Rangers travel to Ayrshire with a fully fit squad as they look to become the first Highland League side to reach the Sixth Round since Elgin City in 1968.
The Cattach's excellent cup run has included wins at League One side's Stranraer and East Fife and they're yet to concede a goal on the way. They're sure to have their work cut out to continue that run against the likes of Kris Boyd and Jordan Jones at Rugby Park.
Killie boss Steve Clarke has said his side will show Brora Rangers the same respect as they did Celtic last weekend, and he's likely to name a strong side against the Highland League outfit.
