Three players and staff across two Championship clubs have tested positive for coronavirus in the EFL’s latest round of testing, it has been announced.

The three positive results come from a mammoth sample of 2,858 tests across the 24 second-tier clubs, and those who have the virus will now self-isolate away from the training ground until they return a negative test.

In League One, zero positive tests were recorded from 297 tests across their four clubs still in action, while League Two also had no-one with the virus from 271 tests of club players and staff in their four clubs.

Those who tested positive in the Championship are now set to miss the upcoming round of fixtures at the weekend, with matches coming thick and fast as the EFL try to finish the season.

The results from this week’s testing are a boost for the Championship and are down on the eight positive tests recorded in the division last week.

Those who tested positive, including one at Brentford, had to miss the season’s restart last weekend but will be able to play in the coming matches if they have since provided a negative test.

Among the fixtures this weekend are Brentford vs West Brom on Friday night, while Leeds host Fulham in a huge game at the top of the table on Saturday.
