Wintry weather in Scotland has led to early weekend postponements, with nine games off already.

Friday's Championship match between Dundee United and leaders St Mirren was the first to fall.

On Saturday, the Premiership meeting of St Johnstone and Hamilton Academical cannot go ahead, with more snow expected in Perthshire.

Dunfermline Athletic v Livingston in the second tier is also off, along with matches in League One and League Two.

The Scottish FA are expected to make decisions on Friday, regarding the weekend quarter-final action in the Scottish Cup.

Clubs involved in league games need to liaise before making any announcements.

"At this moment in time all efforts are being made to ensure the Scottish Cup sixth-round fixtures go ahead as planned," said a Scottish FA spokesperson.

"There are no pitch inspections scheduled at this stage but we are in close contact with all clubs, police and local authorities to review all matches on a case-by-case basis.

"As always, the safety of supporters, players and staff is our top priority."
