ANOTHER English Football League (EFL) match has fallen victim to Covid-19 after the league announced Grimsby’s League Two game against Bradford this weekend had been postponed.
The Lincolnshire club has players and staff still self-isolating, which forced their match against Cheltenham on Saturday to be called off as well.
The EFL said the circumstances surrounding the postponement would be the subject of an investigation, as was the case for the Cheltenham game.
Leyton Orient’s match against Walsall last weekend was also postponed, with the Os having to forfeit their League Cup tie against Tottenham last Tuesday.
Stevenage’s League Two game at Bradford on Saturday afternoon went ahead even though the Hertfordshire club discovered two players had tested positive for coronavirus when they tested all players and staff in the wake of an initial positive case being recorded on Thursday.
The club’s chairman Phil Wallace and Rochdale chief executive David Bottomley both called for weekly testing last week, with the latter saying it was essential for the continuation of the competition.
