Those two teams were due to play in the first round tonight with the winners hosting Hearts on Saturday, but a frozen pitch has again put paid to those plans.

If possible the Camelon-Brora tie will now take place on Saturday, meaning Hearts must wait to learn their opponents and when their second round match can be played.

Camelon and Brora originally met on Boxing Day before a waterlogged pitch forced the match to be abandoned at half-time.

It has been rescheduled several times and Camelon moved it from their pitch at Carmuirs Park to Westfield Park in Denny, which is astroturf.

However, freezing temperatures mean even that surface is solid and unplayable at the moment.

Another attempt to play the match will be made this Saturday at 3pm with all concerned hoping for an improvement in the weather.
