Looks like you won't be as a Scottish Cup replay somehow takes precedence for reasons unclear to me.

 

QotS/Cove and Morton/Inverness are playing their respective replays they following midweek on the 7th. Can only imagine that the clubs get some say in the decision making process.

That does seem a likely reason as both sides think they will get a bigger crowd on a Saturday?  I presume the Cup is run by the SFA so they are superior to SPFL structure. Still annoyed .

Colin, you are indeed correct. One hopes that Scotrail will be sympathetic to the change

We booked through Trainline, they're not allowing changes. Looks like a day in Montrose on the swally or lose our money.

Sent a begging email to Scotrail for a voucher but fear a similar outcome. May be joining you, Jamie?

it's more like Montrose having to cram the fixture in, you have a nice saturday off and will be rested ahead of the game

Shrug, Montrose are also having to cram it in, yes, but that's because they didn't win their cup tie first time of asking. That's kind of the point; you expect to have to cram a game in when you are held to a draw in the cup and forced to replay the fixture. 

We won our cup game so expect we'd be playing our scheduled league game as normal on the Saturday, not having to play Tuesday/Saturday because one of our opponents drew in the cup. It really ought to be the Mo's problem, not ours, and yet both clubs are cramming in, instead of just the one, who only have themselves to blame. 

It's not the end of the world; just a bit of a pain.

Match timing makes it impossible to get back home by train before about 0025 on a Tuesday; so Scotrail refunding less £10 fee. 

Better than I expected in truth.

better than nothing, for sure. Still, must be a pain in the hoop.
