Motherwell's Scottish Premier League clash at home to Dundee United on Tuesday night has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The decision was made late in the day after a small area of the pitch on the East Stand side of Fir Park was deemed unplayable.

A statement released on Motherwell's official website read: "The club would like to apologise for any inconvenience the call-off has caused. The game was given every chance to go ahead but the pitch was not deemed playable by referee Stephen Finnie."

The match was the only fixture in the SPL scheduled for Tuesday night, and three points would have seen the Fir Park side climb up to second in the table.
