THE date has been set for when the abandoned Fife Derby between Dunfermline Athletic and Raith Rovers can take place.

The SPFL has announced this afternoon that the rivals will go at it once again on Wednesday, September 29, with a 7.45pm kick-off.

The game will be shown live on BBC Scotland.

Supporters will be hoping this game goes the distance having witnessed the last effort at Stark's Park, on August 20, be called off less than 15 minutes in.

The game, which had already been delayed five minutes due to a power cut affecting the floodlights before kick-off, was abandoned after the outage impacted stand and concourse lighting and the wifi system that controls ticketed entry to Stark's Park.

In addition, Raith said that fire and smoke alarms were affected, with Police Scotland's match commander deeming that the game could not continue in the interest of public safety.

Around 15 minutes prior to kick-off, as both sets of players made their way back to the changing rooms after completing their warm-up, the floodlights went out as the power supply within the ground went down.
