- Rotherham’s Championship game at Middlesbrough off
- Positive tests in top two women’s divisions rise from four
The growing disruption to football caused by Covid-19 was underlined on Wednesday when Rotherham’s Championship match at Middlesbrough on Boxing Day was postponed and it emerged that 32 players across the Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship tested positive last week.
Rotherham’s home fixture against Derby last Saturday was called off after one of their players tested positive for coronavirus and others showed symptoms. The club said “a number of further positive cases of Covid-19” within the first-team squad meant they could not fulfil the fixture at Boro.
