Aberdeen v Hibs, originally scheduled for Saturday, November 5, will now be played on Friday, November 4 with a 7.30pm kick-off at the request of both clubs.

The clubs were in discussion last season about playing an Aberdeen v Hibs match at a different time to try and tap into markets in the US, but The Scotsman understands that the match has been pushed back due to a firework display taking place close to Pittodrie on November 5 on advice from the police. The match will not be on TV.
