Motherwell travelled to Rugby Park on Wednesday night to face Kilmarnock. It was set to be one of the Premiership’s most tantalising fixtures, but mother nature had a different path for the game.

After fog descended onto pitch level in Kilmarnock, the visibility for the players and fans alike was minimal. Whilst both sides got through the first half, the second half was a far shorter affair.

Just two minutes into the second half with the game at 0-0, proceedings were called to a halt. Referee John Beaton soon ruled that the conditions were unplayable, bringing an end to the game at Rugby Park.

Fans of both teams amongst others took to Twitter to express their view on the situation.

The most logical choice for the rearranged clash has to be Saturday afternoon. With both sides not on Scottish Cup duty at the weekend, it gives both teams the chance to put the fixture to bed. Both Steve Clarke and Stephen Robinson will not want a fixture pileup heading towards the split, which would be a headache for both bosses.

It also gives the Steelmen and Killie the chance to climb the table. With a victory at Rugby Park, Motherwell would have the chance to jump back into seventh, whereas Killie have the opportunity to move within a point of third place Aberdeen.

It’ll be a winner takes all clash if this game goes ahead on Saturday.

With plenty to play for, both sides will be looking at this game as an opportunity to gain an advantage over their rivals.
