Frustration mounts for Rose and BU

THE Rose and Bo'ness are hoping the weather allows their Emirates Scottish Junior Cup ties to go ahead tomorrow (Saturday).

Linlithgow Rose are scheduled to play Auchinleck at Prestonfield, but yesterday (Thursday) the pitch was still very icy and even if there's a thaw, surface water may be a problem.

The BUs are also looking for their tie against Yoker to go ahead at Holm Park.

The last time both teams kicked a ball in earnest was eight weeks ago.
