Saturday's match at Firhill has been postponed

Four games in the Scottish Professional Football League have been postponed amid heavy rainfall following Saturday pitch inspections.

Partick Thistle's Championship match at home to Dunfermline Athletic was first to go, quickly followed by Dumbarton v Forfar Atletic in League One.

League Two games between Stirling Albion and Stenhousemuir and Elgin City and Cowdenbeath are also off.

Arbroath's Championship match with Ayr United was abandoned at half-time.

High winds forced the Gayfield encounter, which stood at 1-1, to be scrapped.

Three Scottish Premiership games, four in the Championship, five in League One and five in League Two were originally scheduled.

The Premiership match between St Mirren and Hearts, due to be played on Friday evening, was also called off.

However, the top-of-the-table meeting between Dundee United and Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Championship did go ahead, with the former winning 2-1 to extend their lead at the top of the table.
