COWDENBEATH'S game with Peterhead schedule for Saturday was the second Scottish league game to be postponed within a week by high winds.

The Ayr United v Caley Thistle Championship game had been postponed the previous Friday and on Saturday Cowdenbeath headed north for their League 2 match with the Blue Toon aware of the windy conditions.

Director David Allan said that when they arrived in Peterhead you were instantly aware of the increase in the wind speed.

He said: "It was a bit windy when we left Fife but nothing to be concerned about but when we got to Peterhead it was considerably stronger.

"The Peterhead people called us to inform of the deteriorating conditions and when I got to the stadium it was very strong indeed.

"The referee called on the Blue Toon 'keeper Greg Fleming to take some kick-outs and the ball was flaying backwards as soon as it got into the air so he decided to call the match off."

The game will be likely to be played early in the new year on a Tuesday night.
