The Cattachs say they are eligible to be promoted to the Scottish Professional Football League if they won the play-offs or gain automatic entry to League Two.

But the SPFL have yet to confirm if Brora or Lowland League champions Kelty Hearts have met the criteria for promotion.

The SPFL declined to comment when approached this afternoon.

No dates have yet been announced by the SPFL for the pyramid promotion play-offs between Brora and Kelty.

In a statement on the Brora Rangers website, chairman William Powrie said: "Following the SPFL board meeting yesterday, I can confirm that Brora Rangers have met all the necessary due diligence and ground criteria for entry into the SPFL.

"At this stage the SPFL are however unable to confirm any dates for the play-off and pyramid fixtures to take place.

"As soon as we receive the notification of the position/dates we will update you with information."

Meanwhile it has been reported elsewhere that Brechin City, who are bottom of League Two, have pleaded with SPFL bosses to scrap the play-offs and increase League Two to 12 teams, giving Brora and Kelty automatic promotion next season.

The report in the Daily Record also claims documents suggests increasing League Two to 16 teams the following season, with the addition of Highland League and Lowland League champions with colts teams from Celtic and Rangers.
