Weather wipes out Tuesday's Scottish card

Further snow is forecast for Scotland on Monday and Tuesday

Tuesday's rescheduled Scottish Cup and Scottish Football League fixtures have been wiped out by the wintry weather around the country.

First Division matches at Cowdenbeath and Raith Rovers were postponed after concerns over travel safety for fans.

The Second Division fixture at Dumbarton and the Third Division match at Clyde were also been called off.

And Tuesday's Scottish Cup replays, at Annan, Beith and Threave have now followed by being postponed.

Saturday's entire SFL card had to be called off because of the referees' strike.

And the league has also been forced into postponing the rescheduled clashes with further sub-zero temperatures and snow forecast for much of the country.

Dunfermline's Fife derby visit to Central Park, Alloa's trip to Dumbarton's Strathclyde Homes Stadium and Queen's Park's trip to Clyde's Broadwood Stadium in Cumbernauld will now be made on the evening of Tuesday 7 December.

Threave and Stenhousemuir will try again in Castle Douglas on Monday 6 December, with a 1930 GMT kick-off.

The other two ties have been rescheduled for the following day.

Beith will have a 1300 kick-off for their third-round match against Airdrie, with Annan facing Brechin in the evening at 1930.

There is no new date yet for the Challenge Cup final, which was postponed on Sunday, between Queen of the South and Ross County.

However, it appears unlikely to be played until 2011.
