The SPFL Board has awarded a 3-0 win to Dundee in Sunday’s Premier Sports Cup Group C tie against Ross County after Ross County informed the SPFL that they will not fulfil the fixture.

Ross County informed the SPFL that, because of a number of players and staff having recently tested positive for Covid-19, they do not have sufficient players available to fulfil the fixture.

An SPFL spokesman said: “Consistent with previous announcements in respect of similar issues in the group stage of this competition, any team unable or unwilling to field a team in a Premier Sports Cup Round 1 group stage tie, will forfeit the match on the basis of a 3-0 defeat. Accordingly, Dundee have been awarded a 3-0 win in the tie.

“We wish the affected players and staff at Ross County all the very best in their recovery and will continue to liaise with the club in the coming days, ahead of their next scheduled Premier Sports Cup match against Brora Rangers on Wednesday July 21.”
