No request has been made to shelve the weekend's match with Hamilton yet, but the Buddies were already forced to cancel last week’s Premiership match after being left with just eight outfield players to face Motherwell.

It has been reported those affected – in the fourth instance of the virus at the club this season – are three players and a staff member.
