Burton Game Off

Mid-week trip to the Pirelli Stadium postponed due to COVID-19 cases

27 December 2021

Wanderers’ Sky Bet League One fixture at Burton Albion on Wednesday 29 December has been postponed.

Wanderers informed the EFL that we would be unable to fulfil the fixture at the Pirelli Stadium due to a number of positive COVID-19 cases in Ian Evatt’s squad.

The club has worked hard to try and ensure that it would be able to play the game.

However, taking into account the injuries and positive COVID-19 cases within the squad, Wanderers do not have a sufficient number of players available in order to fulfil the fixture.

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

In addition, 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 - and up-dated ticket information - will be confirmed in due course.
