SATURDAY'S SFL fixture list has been decimated again by the freezing temperatures across Scotland REPORTS THE DAILY RECORD

Eleven matches have been postponed already due to rock solid pitches and treacherous surrounding areas.

In the first division, league leaders Dunfermline's trip to Ross County is off as is the Queen of the South v Morton clash at frozen Palmerston Park despite valiant efforts by the ground staff and volunteers..

The Fife derby between Raith Rovers and Cowdenbeath was also postponed this afternoon.

Four games are off in division two, those being Ayr United v Forfar Athletic, Brechin City v East Fife, Dumbarton v Peterhead and Stenhousemuir v Livingston.

And in division three Albion Rovers v Annan Athletic has been postponed as has Berwick v Montrose, Stranraer v East Stirling and Clyde v Arbroath - the sixth successive match to be postponed at Broadwood in the last four weeks.

Broadwood is frozen solid and a club statement said: "The pitch remains unplayable, with surrounding areas also treacherous and no forecast for any improvement in the coming days.
