ATHLETIC'S match at home to Dundee tomorrow has been called off.

The club and the SPFL have confirmed this morning that, due to snow and freezing conditions, East End Park is unplayable.

The country has been blanketed with snow over the course of the week and West Fife has been no exception, with a deep amount lying on the playing surface.

With temperatures also dipping below freezing, it has been decided that there is no prospect of football being played tomorrow.

Dunfermline, in third, had been looking to get back to winning ways after last Saturday's reverse to Arbroath, whilst increasing the gap between themselves and the fourth-top Dark Blues.

Stevie Crawford's side, however, were making provisions for a potential postponement this week, with the Pars head coach commenting on Tuesday: "We've sat down as a coaching staff for about 2-3 hours this morning and prepared whether the game's going to be going on at the weekend, or equally, if we can get the right work into the boys in terms of our conditioning.

"We've prepared properly, we'll train tomorrow, Thursday and Friday at the Oriam and we'll have to adapt as we see fit, as the week progresses, and see if the game goes ahead.

"You want the games to be played but if the weather's going to play havoc on us, we just have to adjust accordingly.

"We got an early message out to the boys that we weren't going to train today, we've put a plan in place to let them know we're going to be training Wednesday, Thursday Friday.

"Effectively, today's their day off, and then we just have to judge as the week goes on whether the fixture's going to go ahead how hard we can train the boys, and then possibly look to give them some time off over the weekend as well."

Dunfermline's match isn't the only game to be hit by the weather.

Raith Rovers, who occupy second place on goal difference, have had their game at home to Ayr United postponed, while a 1.30pm pitch inspection today will determine whether Inverness' game with Morton will go ahead.

Alloa's clash with Arbroath, and Hearts' trip to Queen of the South tonight, are, however, still scheduled to go ahead.

A new date for the fixture will be announced in due course.
