Saturday’s home Betfred League Cup tie against Albion Rovers was cancelled by the SPFL just three hours before kick off, after the Coatbridge side informed the League that they were unable to play the fixture.
This follows reportedly one player testing positive in the visiting team, and several more having to isolate due to track and trace, plus some players and staff with symptoms on Saturday morning.
Our good wishes for a speedy recovery to the players affected.
As a result, and in compliance with SPFL amended rules for this season’s League Cup, the match was awarded 3-0 to Accies for the benefit of the group league table. However, both oursleves and Rovers were already unable to qualify.
As the game was cancelled and will not be played, the awarded result will not be in the club records.
