Ross County v Hibernian game off after two visiting players test positive

Hibs was expected to arrive at Ross County's Global Energy Stadium
After two of the visitors' players were discovered to have Covid-19, Hibernian's Scottish Premiership match at Ross County was postponed

Both of them are asymptomatic and both returned positive lateral flow test results at 10:00 BST Saturday. They had been riding on one the two buses that traveled north to Dingwall from Friday.

Hibs told the SPFL that everyone who was on that bus was considered close to each other and that they were required to self-isolate.

The Edinburgh club will continue testing next week. Those who are isolating can return to the club if they have been double vaccinated and returned a negative PCR test.

Hibs stated that they had taken all necessary precautions to transport the squad on two coaches.

"We have no choice but to postpone the fixture in accordance with SPFL regulations. Due to medical confidentiality, the names of those involved will not be released. Those affected will be isolated.

Hibs apologise for any inconvenience caused to their fans by the delay. They will reach out to those who have tickets "in due course".

County stated on their website that they were "extremely disappointed" with the situation and pointed out that it was entirely due to "circumstances beyond our control".

SPFL states that an "further update" will be made in due course about when the fixture will change.
