Motherwell v St Johnstone forced off by waterlogged pitch

Motherwell's Scottish Premiership match with Inverness has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Fir Park.

The club made the announcement after seven inches of rain was recorded at the ground over the last 19 days.

Following a pitch inspection on Saturday morning by match official John Beaton, it was decided the pitch was unplayable.

"Motherwell Football Club would like to apologise for any inconvenience this postponement may cause," the club said on its official website.

"No date has, as yet, been confirmed for the rearranged fixture."
