While the pitch was given the all clear, there were concerns about stadium access and snow in the stands.

The NI Football League later announced the Ballymena United v Ballinamallard United Premiership fixture planned for Tuesday, March 13 has been postponed because of the Cup tie now taking precedence.

Championship side Loughgall are awaiting the draw for the semi-final after the other ties are completed having defeated Glenavon 2-1 in the only game which went ahead on Saturday.
