inspection this morning has shown that the pitch is frozen. A yellow weather
warning for ice and snow is in place for Glasgow, and across Scotland, on
Saturday which means it will not be possible for the pitch to return to a
playable condition and ensure player safety in time for the game happen. The
early decision has also taken into consideration Benetton’s travel

announce rescheduled details shortly.

efforts during the week to give the fixture every possible chance of being
