BRORA Rangers suffered another postponement in the Highland League after their scheduled clash at Strathspey Thistle tonight has been called off.

Heavy snow left Seafield Park completely covered with frozen temperatures meaning there was no chance that the pitch could be cleared in time.

The postponement leaves Brora with 19 games to play between now and when the season is due to finish on Saturday, April 13 to coincide with the League Two play-offs.

Manager Ally MacDonald has already stated the club are facing the likelihood of playing two games almost every week until the end of the season.

The club will be desperate to return to action on Saturday when they are scheduled to face Clachnacuddin at Dudgeon Park in the Highland League.

The Cattachs did play last Saturday when they defeated Deveronvale 3-0 in Banff.

Tony Dingwall gave Brora the lead after just three minutes after he pounced on a rebound after his penalty was saved.

Kyle Macleod doubled Brora Rangers advantage on the half hour mark with a header from Matthew Strachan cross.

Jordan Macrae killed the game off in the last minute of normal time when he headed a corner kick home from Alex Cooper.

Meanwhile, Brora Rangers have lost the services of goalkeeper Logan Ross who was recalled by Ross County last week.

He was brought as back-up for Ross County after Ross Laidlaw sustained a calf injury and was on the substitute's bench against St Johnstone last Saturday when they lost 1-0.

Ross was also named on the Ross County bench in the club’s 5-0 defeat to Motherwell at Fir Park on Tuesday night.

Joe Malin returned in goal for Brora Rangers in their 3-0 win at Deveronvale.
