Motherwell game postponed

December 28, 2011

Strong winds have forced the postponement of Motherwell's match against Dunfermline.

The winds have caused structural damage to Well's Fir Park ground which it was feared could put spectators at risk. The match has already been rescheduled for Tuesday, January 24, kicking off at 7.45pm.

Motherwell chief executive Leeann Dempster said, "We were obviously desperate to get the game on but there has been significant structural damage to the ground.

"That could have posed a risk to supporters so with that in mind, we have agreed with Dunfermline to postpone the fixture and replay it at the earliest opportunity.''
