Cambridge United’s forthcoming Sky Bet League One fixture against Doncaster Rovers on Thursday 30th December has been postponed…
The Club informed the EFL that it would be unable to fulfil the fixture at The Abbey Stadium due to a number of positive COVID-19 cases within the squad.
Cambridge United has worked hard to ensure that this wasn’t the outcome. However, taking into account the injuries and positive COVID-19 cases within the squad, the Club does not have a sufficient number of players available in order to fulfil the fixture.
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.
