BRORA Rangers’ fixture pile up in the Highland League is continuing to grow after last week’s clash against Lossiemouth was postponed less than an hour before kick off.

The match scheduled to take place at Dudgeon Park last Saturday was officially called off at 2.10pm after the referee was unhappy with an area of the pitch.

This was despite the pitch being given the all clear after an inspection which took place at 10.30am last Saturday.

The call-off means that Brora Rangers have still only played 12 games in the Highland League this season.

They are facing playing 22 league matches by Saturday, April 13 to coincide with the end of the League Two season and for the play-offs to begin the follow week.

Brora Rangers also have to fit in a Scottish Cup fourth round match with Cove Rangers on January 20 and a Highland League Cup final with Fraserburgh in March.

The Cattachs have been informed that midweek games are scheduled to start from January 24.

Manager Ally MacDonald has said previously that his team are bracing themselves to be playing twice a week, for almost the rest of the campaign.

Brora Rangers will hope that they return to action tomorrow when they are scheduled to travel to Aberdeenshire to take on Inverurie Locos at Harlaw Park.

Inverurie Locos have improved since their poor start to the campaign when they defeated Huntly 2-1 at Christie Park.

The Cattachs find themselves in ninth place in the league with 27 points, having won eight of their 12 games so far, with only one defeat.

They are 13 points behind league leaders Brechin City, but do have four games in hand on the table toppers.

Brora’s last game was a 1-0 win against Rothes on December 16.
