And Another One's Gone...

Morton's New Year clash with Partick Thistle is the latest Ton match to be cancelled.

The fixture, set to be played on 2 January, was postponed after several pipes burst at Cappielow, affecting the toilets and other facilities.

A statement posted on the official website earlier today reads: "We have experienced an unprecedented number of burst pipes at the Stadium following the recent cold weather, which has affected various facilities within the ground including the toilets and catering stands.

"Despite repairs having been carried out over the last 48 hours, the situation is such that we have had to take the decision to cancel this weekends match. We would like to apologise for having to postpone, but trust that supporters will understand the reasons for doing so."

The match is the sixth to succumb to the arctic winter we are currently experiencing.
