Defender to stay at home for a minimum of 14 days
Luke Woolfenden has entered a period of self-isolation after coming into close contact with an individual who has tested positive for Covid-19.
Blues were alerted to the positive test result yesterday, with Woolfy not attending the training ground and absent for the trip to Sunderland for tonight’s League One fixture.
The Town centre-back is now self-isolating for a minimum of 14 days in line with Government guidelines.
At present, Woolfy is not displaying symptoms but the 22-year-old will be in regular conversation with the medical staff at the Club.
As well as the game at Sunderland this evening, he will also not be available for the FA Cup tie against Portsmouth on Saturday and the Papa John’s Trophy fixture at Crawley next week.
Woolfy has started the last two League victories for Town while he has also featured on three occasions in cup competitions so far this term.
