Livingston's Scottish Premiership game with Hamilton Academical on Wednesday has been called off because of a snowbound pitch.

The West Lothian club posted pictures showing eight inches of snow covering the surface.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle's Championship match with Alloa Athletic was postponed on Wednesday morning.

But the other two top-flight fixtures - Kilmarnock v Motherwell and St Mirren v Celtic - are still set to go ahead.

Livingston said trying to clear the pitch in time for their scheduled 18:00 GMT kick-off was "near impossible".

The club added: "There is so much snow on the park that there is physically not enough room at the edges of the pitch to clear it to.

"A 15-metre test run in the car park left a six-foot snow pile - a clear indication that the issue would be the same at pitch side."

Earlier, a frozen pitch at the Caledonian Stadium caused the postponement of Alloa's tip to Inverness following a 9:00 inspection.

It is the second time the game has been postponed, and Inverness Caley's third call-off in a fortnight.

John Robertson's side are yet to play at home in 2021 and have had just 11 league games this season, three fewer than most rivals.
