Boxing Day match at home to Charlton is postponed

Game off after our opponents informed the EFL that they would not be able to fulfil fixture

23 December 2021

Our League One home match versus Charlton Athletic has been postponed.

Charlton informed the EFL that it would be unable to fulfil the fixture at the Cherry Red Records Stadium due to a number of positive COVID-19 cases in their squad.

In light of the increased transmission rate of the Omicron variant, the EFL will now review the circumstances surrounding the postponement.

In a statement announcing the postponement, the EFL said 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 announced in due course.
