The SPFL have confirmed that St Mirren’s Premiership match against Hamilton on Saturday has been postponed as a result of the Paisley club’s latest coronavirus outbreak.

The club says a number of positive cases have been discovered to add to several players already self-isolating.

That has left St Mirren without enough players to fulfil the fixture, meaning they miss their second consecutive game after the match against Motherwell was called off last weekend.

A statement from the SPFL read: “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.”
