At the request of both clubs, the Scottish Premiership fixture scheduled for Wednesday, December 30 has been brought forward by almost five hours to 3.00pm rather than the initial time of 7.45pm.
The sides meet at St Mirren Park tonight in the Betfred Cup quarter-final, which is being broadcast live on Premier Sports, before Steven Gerrard’s men return to the same venue for what will be their final game of the calendar year.
A full card of Scottish Premiership fixtures is scheduled for December 30 and a number of clubs have already moved their fixtures forward.
St Johnstone v Hamilton also starts at 3pm, while Hibs v Ross County is at 6pm and Motherwell v Kilmarnock is scheduled for 615pm.
