St Mirren v Hamilton Accies has been postponed as the Buddies continue to be hit with Covid-19 problems.

Last week the Paisley side had a game with Motherwell in Premiership action called off as three of their players tested positive for the virus, several others entering self-isolation.

Their Covid fears haven’t subsided this week either, new positive cases emerging in the routine round of testing. Now Jim Goodwin’s entire first-team squad has entered isolation as another game is postponed.

An SPFL statement reads: “Tomorrow’s Scottish Premiership match between St Mirren and Hamilton Academical has been postponed after St Mirren informed the SPFL that they could not fulfil the fixture.


“St Mirren have informed the SPFL that, due to a number of positive tests for Covid-19 amongst their playing squad and coaching staff, and a number of other players who are isolating, they have only eleven registered fit players available for tomorrow’s game against Hamilton Academical – and that, as a result, St Mirren are unable to fulfil tomorrow’s fixture.

“As a result, and in line with standard procedure, the SPFL have postponed the fixture pending the ongoing investigation into the events at St Mirren.”

Saints chief executive Tony Fitzpatrick has also responded to the news, saying health must be the priority: “We appreciate this is a frustrating situation for all connected to the club and those involved at Hamilton Academical.

“This continues to be a challenging time for the club but the health and wellbeing of our players and staff remains our utmost concern.”
