A statement from the EFL

Gillingham's Sky Bet League 1 fixture against Peterborough will not go ahead as planned on Boxing Day.

18 December 2020

The EFL have released a statement confirming that Peterborough will not be travelling to Kent on December 26.

Peterborough United’s next three Sky Bet League One fixtures against Ipswich Town (Saturday 19 December), Gillingham (Saturday 26 December) and Charlton Athletic (Tuesday 29 December) have been suspended.

The Club informed the EFL that they would be unable to fulfil the fixtures following a recent positive COVID-19 test and the requirement for players and staff to self-isolate for 10 days as per EFL and Government guidance in order to mitigate against the risk of further infection.

The circumstances surrounding the postponements will now be the subject of an investigation in accordance with EFL Regulations.

Revised dates for the rearranged fixtures will be confirmed in due course.
