Dunfermline's match at Partick Thistle has fallen victim of the recent bad weather.

A pitch inspection was called for 10am at Firhill and officials decided the game could not go ahead.

A statement on Thistle's website confirmed the match had been postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.

Thistle manager Ian McCall said: “We were all desperate to play a game of football this afternoon but the referee has made the correct decision.

"There are areas of the park that aren’t playable and would not be safe for the players. The forecast for the rest of the day is poor and wouldn’t help to get the surface playable. It’s disappointing but absolutely the correct decision.”



The game was set to be 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.
