The match between Kilmarnock and Motherwell on Friday, 2 October 2020 has been cancelled.
Following confirmation that six opposition players tested positive for Covid-19, discussions took place between Kilmarnock FC, NHS Ayrshire and Arran, the Scottish Government, Public Health Scotland and the Scottish FA on Friday morning.
The decision was taken to isolate their entire playing squad for 14 days, in line with contact tracing protocols.
As a result, Kilmarnock FC applied to the SPFL board for a cancellation of the fixture. This has been granted.
Motherwell FC believes the right course of action has been taken, in order to protect players and staff of both clubs.
We wish those affected by the virus a speedy recovery to full health.
An investigation will now be carried out by the SPFL to ascertain the circumstances leading to this cancellation.
A spokesman for the SPFL said: “No new date for this fixture has been set, pending the outcome of the SPFL investigation.”
