Accrington Stanley game suspended

Scheduled to take place on Tuesday 29 December, the club has informed the EFL that it will be unable to play the fixture due to the ongoing effects of a Covid-19 outbreak at the Academy of Light.

Due to the scale of this outbreak and the volume of positive tests returned by players and staff, the club has taken the decision to postpone the game based solely on the health and wellbeing of all effected.

We're going to be in a relegation battle at this rate

So, they didn't isolate in time.
Bloody COVID-19 is highly contagious and you can catch it by looking at someone!
