Game off today

Jim Jefferies has a team ready to play but nowhere to go to release the tension. 6cm of snow fell over the central belt overnight which meant that the Fir Park tie fell victim to the weather. The pitch was fit to play on, thanks to the efforts of the ground staff ,but on the advice of Strathclyde police the game was called off. Travelling fans may also have had second thoughts about heading west anyway as the weather is not expected to improve during the day.
