REFEREE APPROVES PITCH AT THIS MORNING'S 9AM INSPECTION

Following a precautionary pitch inspection this morning at 9am, referee Kevin Clancy deemed the surface playable for this afternoon's match versus Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup.

There had been some doubts this week due to the heavy rainfall in Perth, however the weather cleared up on Thursday and Friday and thanks to the tremendous work of the ground staff today's match will go ahead as planned.

The match kicks off at 3pm. Supporters are reminded that League Cup semi-final tickets go on general sale from the Ticket Office directly after today's game. Phone lines for the Ticket Office will not be open this weekend but will be from MONDAY at 9.30am on 01738 455000.
