SPL bosses have told St Mirren to forget about appealing the decision to send the Buddies back to Falkirk for a third time this season.
Chairman Stewart Gilmour was furious that a quirk of the fixture list following the controversial SPL split means Gus MacPherson must take his boys to face their main relegation rivals, who they are now level on points with at the foot of the table, at the Bairns' Falkirk Stadium.
Gilmour called it "grossly unfair" on his side - and claims the SPL have told him not to bother launching an appeal against their fixtures.
He told the Paisley Daily Express: "We have been informed by the SPL that there is no point making a challenge to the fixtures.
"They said this was the only way to ensure everyone played 19 games at home and 19 away.
"But we feel that the three clubs at the bottom should have been paired off so they played each other twice at home and twice at the other team's ground.
"It shows the inadequacies of a 12-team league."
