Tue, 08 Feb 11:45:04 2011

St Johnstone's Scottish Cup fifth-round clash with Partick Thistle, scheduled for Tuesday evening, has been postponed due to snow and will now take place on Wednesday night.

The Scottish Football Association confirmed the postponement on Tuesday morning, ahead of a planned 12.45pm pitch inspection.

A statement on St Johnstone's official website read: "Although a pitch inspection was planned for lunchtime, the club have agreed with the SFA that such an exercise would be a mere formality and that an earlier decision would suit supporters."

The rescheduled match faces a further pitch inspection at 1pm on Wednesday. The winners will travel to Brechin in the quarter-finals.
