Fixture headache for Dundee United as match against Queen of the South is beaten by snow

Dundee United’s home match against Queen of the South has been postponed due to heavy snow.

The Tangerines had hoped to get a victory over the Dumfries men to ease some of the pain inflicted by last Friday’s loss at Livingston and also make up some points on their Championship rivals.

However, the fixture was beaten by the “beast from the east” as white-out weather in the city saw the match called off around 6pm.

It is the last thing manager Csaba Laszlo and his players need due to their already heavy fixture backlog and gives the Hungarian another headache to go with his side’s form slump.

It was also bad news for Queens, who had a fruitless journey up from the south.

 

The Doonhamers seemed to appreciate that the pitch had been playable earlier in the day and that there wasn’t much United could do about the teatime snowfall.

A statement from the Palmerston club said: “Tonight’s game at Tannadice has been postponed following blizzard conditions hitting Dundee in the last hour or so.

“A green pitch at at 4.30pm was unfortunately unplayable an hour later. The two clubs will discuss a new date for this fixture as soon as possible.”
