Next 3 games are postponed due to a covid outbreak at the academy

Sunderland AFC has today informed the EFL that it will not be able to play its next three Sky Bet League One fixtures following an outbreak of Covid-19 at the Academy of Light.

Lee Johnson’s side are scheduled to return to training on Sunday 27 December ahead of resuming their 2020-21 campaign at Accrington Stanley on Tuesday 29 December.

That's our promotion chances gone as well imo.

It had to happen but Sunderland and Newcastle will not be the only teams to suffer because of COVID-19.
