BUCKIE Thistle Aberdeenshire Shield tie against Banks O’ Dee on Tuesday night has been given the go ahead.
Victoria Park is playable after recovering from heavy overnight frost, and Jags will be favourites to progress to the semi-finals at the expense of their junior opponents.
Rising temperatures have also improved Keith’s chances of playing their home quarter-final against Turriff on Wednesday night.
Buckie striker Nikki Smith will miss the Banks’ clash due to injury while Donnie Munro is also a doubt, but stopper Lewis Mackinnon is free from suspension to play.
The game kicks off at 8pm with the winners away to Cove Rangers in the next round.
