A PITCH inspection has been called ahead of Dunfermline's trip to Partick Thistle tomorrow morning.

The Jags have, in the last few minutes, announced that a "precautionary" inspection will be held at 10am ahead of the clash at Firhill.

On their website, Thistle stated: "Given recent weather conditions and the current forecast for the next 24 hours, there will be a precautionary pitch inspection at 10am tomorrow morning ahead of our Ladbrokes Championship fixture against Dunfermline Athletic.

"The pitch is currently heavy but playable and we will update supporters with further information following this inspection."

If the game goes ahead, it will the first fixture in three weeks for Stevie Crawford's men, who have been out of action since their win at Queen of the South on February 1.

The Pars were without a game on February 8 due to Scottish Cup fixtures, while their scheduled match with Inverness Caledonian Thistle a week later will be played on Tuesday night, due to the Highlanders' involvement in the Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Cup.

If results go their way, Athletic could move into the Championship's promotion play-off positions with victory at Thistle, who sit bottom of the table.

When the teams first met at Maryhill in September, goals from Kevin Nisbet, Ryan Dow and Kyle Turner gave Dunfermline a 3-0 win, while November's return at East End saw 10-man Thistle hammered 5-1.

Yesterday, it was announced that their meeting on April 25, which is Athletic's final home league game of the campaign, has been put back to 7.20pm to be broadcast live by BBC Scotland.
