Crewe fixture postponed.
The club's Sky Bet League One fixture versus Crewe Alexandra on Saturday 18th December has been postponed.
We informed the EFL that the club would be unable to fulfil the fixture at MEMS Priestfield Stadium due to a number of positive COVID-19 cases in the squad.
In light of the increased transmission rate of the Omicron variant, the EFL will now review the circumstances surrounding the postponement. In addition it will assist affected Clubs throughout this challenging period to help them mitigate against the risk of infection amongst players and staff, while ensuring their obligations to the EFL regulations are maintained.
A rearranged date for the fixture will be confirmed in due course.
Manager Steve Evans has confirmed that the details of players who have tested positive for COVID-19 will remain private and confidential.
