Unsurprisingly, the weather has once more wrecked havoc with Scottish football this weekend. A host of games has already been postponed more than 24 hours before kick-off.
The most high-profile game to be postponed is Hibernian’s trip to Ross County. The pitch in Dingwall was subject to a 2pm inspection, but failed to pass the test due to a frozen pitch.

Both clubs will be hoping that the game is rescheduled as soon as possible. This midweek is a possibility, as neither side is in action. However, that will depend on the weather improving in Dingwall.
No shock if more inspections take place
As it stands, the five other matches in the Premiership are set to go ahead. But it would be no shock to see more pitch inspections tomorrow morning.
The situation is even worse in the Championship, where three games have been postponed already. Dunfermline vs Dundee, Inverness vs Morton and Raith vs Ayr have all been called off.
Only two games survive
As it stands, the only games in the Championship that will go ahead are tonight’s game between Queen of the South and Hearts, and Alloa’s game against Arbroath.
The postponements will only add to the backlog of games that need to be played in the Championship. As it stands, there is one game due to be played in the Championship next midweek – Inverness vs Queen of the South.
Perhaps there is a chance some of this weekend’s postponed games could be played then. The clubs should be looking to make use of any free midweek they can, weather permitting of course.
