The match was originally due to take place on Saturday, March 16 and at first sold out all of its hospitality packages.

However, when the game was switched to Friday, March 15, it resulted in the number of hospitality spaces dropping to 135.

But when the game was postponed and rearranged for tomorrow night, the number of people signed up for hospitality fell to 40.

A spokesman for the club said it was no longer viable for the club to offer hospitality packages at tomorrow's big game due to low numbers.

He said: "Initially we had sold out all the spaces for the scheduled Saturday game.

"When this was moved to the Friday night, due to being shown on BBC Scotland, the numbers dropped to 135.

"After the Friday night game was rained off, the game was switched to Tuesday night.

"That number fell to under 40 and it became unviable to go ahead.

"The companies and individuals who were due to come along on Tuesday night have been contacted and will be offered a discounted deal for either of the two Saturday home fixtures that we have left.

"Dundee United on Saturday, April 20 or Dunfermline Athletic on Saturday, May 4.

"The club has apologised to those involved."
