The Capital requested that the SPFL postpone the game due to a number of positive Covid cases which means they do not have enough players available to fulfil the fixture.
An SPFL spokesman said: “After reviewing the information provided by Edinburgh City, their cinch League 2 match against Albion Rovers at Ainslie Park on Sunday January 2 has been postponed. A new date for the fixture will be announced in due course.”

“All tickets for the game will be honoured for the new date, Refunds will also be available if required and we will have details on that soon also.”
