Clean bill of health for Blues ahead of Swindon visit

Town’s first-team players and coaching staff have all reported negative Covid-19 tests.

Blues along with every Championship, League One and League Two club were instructed by the EFL to carry out mandatory Covid-19 tests across their playing and coaching staff at the start of this week.

A Covid outbreak at Playford Road in December resulted in 11 players and coaches testing positive, meaning four League games were postponed.

Rigorous precautions remain in place at Playford Road with no dressing-room areas in use, or the canteen. The building is limited to just a couple of members of staff, with the first-team players turning up for training already changed and leaving straight after training is finished.

The training ground is used by the first-team only in the morning, with the Academy squad training in the afternoon.

Blues are back in action on Saturday, when they take on Swindon Town at Portman Road, live on Sky Sports with a 5.30pm kick-off.

Only season ticket holders will have access to watching the game on iFollow due to broadcast regulations.
