The news came this afternoon after Dunfermline informed the SPFL they could not fulfil the fixture.

A statement from the SPFL said: “Dunfermline have informed the SPFL that they have had a confirmed case of COVID-19.

"The club has been liaising with the Scottish FA, the Elite Sport Clinical Advisory Group and Test and Protect to establish whether any other players or staff will need to self-isolate.

"Dunfermline have now informed the SPFL that, following conclusion of that process and due to the number of players now self-isolating, they have insufficient players to fulfil the fixture.

“As a result, and in line with standard procedure, the SPFL has postponed the fixture pending an investigation into the circumstances leading to the postponement.”
