The Staggies' trip to West Lothian had been put in doubt after the inspection was announced yesterday in anticipation of dropping temperatures and potential snowfall overnight.

After a higher level of snow than expected, it has now been confirmed that Livingston's pitch is not playable, and the game has been postponed.

A new date will be confirmed for the match in due course.

County are not the only ones affected by the weather, as closer to home a number of the weekend's other sporting fixtures have already fallen foul of the weather.

In the Highland League, Clachnacuddin and Nairn County have both seen their matches – against Inverurie Locos and Huntly respectively – called off.

The North Caledonian League has not escaped either, as matches between Loch Ness and Fort William, Halkirk United and Alness United, and Clachnacuddin A and Inverness Athletic have all already been postponed.

Similarly, in rugby's Caledonia North Two, Highland's third team will no longer be playing Inverness Craig Dunain.
