Hearts Ladbrokes Premiership match against Inverness Caledonian Thistle, scheduled to take place in the Highland capital on Tuesday evening, has been postponed.

Hearts have been hit by a sickness bug which has hit the majority of their first team squad and left the club with only one fit goalkeeper over the age of 16.

Hearts club doctor provided the SPFL with written evidence of those players affected and, given the nature of the sickness bug, also considered the threat of the virus being passed to players and officials of Inverness Caledonian Thistle,

The SPFL agreed to Hearts request to postpone the game which will now be played next Tuesday, 12 April 2016.
