Livingston and Aberdeen have been left frustrated after their game on Wednesday afternoon was called off due to a frozen pitch.

The game was meant to kick-off at four o’clock. However, a pitch inspection at the Tony Macaroni Arena was held and the game has been postponed.

Staff worked for 36 hours

Livingston released a statement on their Twitter account praising the work that the staff at the club had undertaken over the last 36 hours, but it hadn’t been enough to ensure that the game went ahead.

The news will be frustrating for both sides, as they are both on a good run of form. There is no guarantee that will be the case when the game is replayed, some time next year.

However, at least on this occasion it is weather that has caused the game to be postponed, and not any issues involving Covid-19.

Both managers will be disappointed

Still, both David Martindale and Derek McInnes will be disappointed that the game is off. When teams are playing well, they can’t wait to play the next game usually.

Thankfully for both Livingston and Aberdeen, they don’t have to wait long for their next games. Livingston is in action on Saturday when they face what looks to be a tough trip to Easter Road to take on Hibernian.

Meanwhile, Aberdeen face Dundee United at Pittodrie in the New Firm derby. At least both teams will get a brief break before they are next in action. With the games coming thick and fast, it might be awhile before the game is rescheduled. Still, that is Scottish weather for you.
