Clyde A-A Livingston

Sat, 28th Nov 2009 5:49pm

Heavy fog caused today's Scottish Cup match against Livingston to be abandoned after about 30 minutes.

The conditions were not ideal, but playable, when the match started, but a quick deterioration of visibility left the officials with no choice but to end the game.

Livi had been leading 0-1 through a Halliday goal, with Willie Sawyers missing a fine chance to level at the other end. The supporters at Broadwood were struggling to keep up with the action though.

Clyde director of football, Neil Watt said, "It's meant to be a spectacle for paying fans and when they are saying they can't see, that will have influenced the ref's decision. His assistants were also saying they were finding it hard to see, so overall it was probably the right decision.

"The fog got worse after the kick-off and from the dugout we couldn't see the far side of the pitch."

Livingston boss Gary Bollan, who watched his side take the lead, reluctantly agreed:-

"The ref's made the call, which is fair enough. I don't know how much the conditions deteriorated but the assistants on both side of the pitch said they were struggling to make decisions.

"I'm a bit disappointed given that we were one up, but that's what can happen and we just have to get on with it."

The match will now take place on Tuesday with a 7.45pm kick-off. Full details to follow.

The lack of an outcome means that both clubs will be in the hat for the Fourth Round draw, which takes place on Monday afternoon on Sky Sports.
