THREE more Highland League games are off due to the increasing number of positive Covid-19 tests and associated self-isolation - and the weather.

Huntly and Deveronvale's squads have both been affected by the pandemic and their match at Christie Park on Saturday has been postponed.

It's a similar story at Mackessack Park where the Rothes versus Inverurie Locos match was called off.

And Seafield Park in Grantown has failed a pitch inspection due to snow, ruling out Strathspey Thistle's match against Turriff United.

On Tuesday, early decisions were made for Forres Mechanics' match against Brora Rangers and Fort William's visit to Nairn County, both matches also off.

Decisions will be made on Lossiemouth's trip to Clach with a number of Covid cases in the Coasters camp, and Buckie Thistle's trip to leaders Fraserburgh with several Jags players in isolation.

Formartine United are scheduled to host Brechin City and Keith make the trip to Wick Academy in Saturday's other two matches.
