The SPFL have announced the rearranged dates for nine league fixtures that had to be postponed due to poor weather or scheduling conflicts.

A key switch affects the teams at the top end of the Ladbrokes Championship. Hibs home game with Livingston, which was originally due to be held in early March, will now be pushed back until Tuesday 5 April, with Rangers’ hosting of Dumbarton being moved back on to the same date.

After those matches there will be only four rounds of fixtures left, meaning that night could have a huge impact on the second tier title race.

Hibernian’s Edinburgh rivals Hearts have two matches rescheduled. Their away trip to Inverness has been moved for a third time to Tuesday 15 March. The game was originally called-off due to a water-logged pitch.

Hearts’ home meeting with Partick Thistle, which became a victim of the weather the weekend before last, will now take place on Saturday 5 March.

Thistle themselves host Aberdeen on Tuesday 8 March, while St Johnstone have two of their home games rescheduled. Against Inverness CT on Wednesday 9 March and Ross County seven days later.

The two remaining changes concern Queen of the South. They’ll now travel to Morton on Tuesday 15 March and Dumbarton a month later on Tuesday 12 April.

Rescheduled fixtures in full:

05/03/16 - Hearts v Partick Thistle

08/03/16 - Partick Thistle v Aberdeen

09/03/16 - St. Johnstone v Inverness Caledonian Thistle

15/03/16 - Inverness Caledonian Thistle v Hearts

15/03/16 - Morton v Queen of the South

16/03/16 - St Johnstone v Ross County

05/04/16 - Hibs v Livingston
