Motherwell v St Mirren has fallen victim of heavy rainfall as the Lanarkshire clash has been postponed.

The pair were set to face off again after a weather-impacted battle in the Scottish Cup last week. Storm Ciara made the match in Paisley a difficult one for supporters to enjoy and players to perform in.

This time it was heavy rain causing trouble and a pitch inspection was called at 12:30 to determine whether this match would go ahead. It hasn’t passed the test.

Sustained heavy rainfall has rendered the park unplayable. The Fir Park club gave it every chance of passing the inspection but a decision has been made to reschedule the match.

 

Stephen Robinson and Jim Goodwin’s men won’t need to wait long for another encounter. They face each other on Tuesday in a Scottish Cup Fifth Round replay.

The winner of that tie will face Aberdeen or Kilmarnock at home for a spot in the competition’s semi-finals. A date for the league fixture between Motherwell and St Mirren will be set in due course.
