St Johnstone are set open their UEFA Europa League campaign against Turkish side Eskisehirspor

The game was rearranged to Tuesday after being called off because of a frozen pitch on Saturday.

But St Johnstone announced today that the fourth-round encounter had been put back a second time.

A statement from the Perth club read: "The Central Park club's pitch remains frost-bound and with sub-zero temperatures forecast for the remainder of the week there is little prospect of the pitch conditions changing.

"In line with Scottish Football Association rules, the tie will now take place on Monday 10th December at 7.45pm."

The winners of the tie were today drawn away to St Mirren in the fifth round.

Dumbarton's rearranged home tie against Hamilton has also been rescheduled for next Monday night with their frozen pitch under several inches of snow.
