Livingston is confident that tonight’s game against Celtic at the Tony Macaroni Arena will not be postponed according to reports.

There have been doubts that the game would go ahead after pictures emerged of the pitch at the Tony Macaroni Arena covered in snow.

Two recent postponements

However, the report discloses that Livingston are confident that the game will go ahead as scheduled. Indeed, the report reveals that a ‘Livingston source’ has told the Daily Record that the pitch underneath the snow is currently playable.

That will be a relief to both clubs. Livingston have already had issues with games being postponed in the last month. Twice their game against Aberdeen at the Tony Macaroni Arena has been cancelled.

The first time because of a frozen pitch, the second time due to a waterlogged pitch. However, as it stands Livingston seem confident that the game will not be postponed.

Both teams will want game played

Celtic will want to get the game on as the club has so many games still to play this season. After tonight, Neil Lennon’s side aren’t in league duty for another week. They will not want yet another fixture to add to their current backlog.

Only time will tell if the game does go ahead or not. The referee might have something to say about the state of the pitch in a few hours time.

It should be remembered that the match isn’t scheduled to kick off until eight-fifteen. That gives the pitch plenty of time to sort itself out one way or the other. As at the time of writing though, the game is going ahead.
