Ground staff had swept the water off the artificial pitch during the warm-up, but it was still deemed too wet for the action.

The revamped match was originally postponed due to a frozen pitch at the Tony Macaroni Arena on December 30.


Livingston manager David Martindale said the move to postpone was valid, but his players were keen to play

Livingston’s next game, fifth, is on Saturday against Celtic, while Aberdeen, third, faces Ross County at Global Energy Stadium.
