The game between Salford City and Scunthorpe United tonight has been postponed after the Lincolnshire side had EIGHT players test positive for COVID-19.
A statement on the Ammies’ website stated that: “This morning we were made aware of the postponement due to a number of COVID-19 cases at Scunthorpe. The decision has been taken to avoid any risk of further infection and spread of the disease.
“Our best wishes for a speedy recovery go to those affected.
“Next week’s Central League fixture between the clubs has also been postponed.”
