St Johnstone have expressed frustration with arrangements for their League Cup semi-final tickets.

Saints fans are waiting to hear if they will get an extra allocation for the clash against Hibernian at Tynecastle on 30 January.

The Perth club were initially allocated the Roseburn Stand but were told Main Stand tickets would be available if there was sufficient demand.

A St Johnstone statement read: “The club are aware of the frustration felt by the fans who, to date, do not have tickets for the League Cup semi-final against Hibernian FC at Tynecastle and are waiting to hear if any more will become available. We wish to assure those fans that the club is in daily dialogue with the SPFL on the matter.

“The club shares the frustration that with only 10 days remaining before the match we are still awaiting a definitive outcome.

“We have been advised that security and safety matters at the stadium – specifically segregation – are under review with the appropriate authorities.

“The outcome of this review will determine whether additional tickets can be provided and we can only hope that the decision will be made with little further delay, allowing our supporters to make travel arrangements if tickets do become available.”
