Saturday’s Championship game between Luton Town and Queens Park Rangers has been postponed after positive Covid-19 tests among Hatters players and staff.

Luton and Bristol City played each other at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday.

“Positive Covid test results have been returned by some senior players, football staff and immediate members of family,” said a Luton club statement.

“We are awaiting further testing which unfortunately cannot be completed by official English Football League procedures before tomorrow’s 3pm kick-off, so the league has agreed to postpone the fixture based on our own recommendation and the league’s medical advice.”

It is a first postponement this season for 13th-placed Luton and also for 18th-placed QPR, who are just four points outside the Championship relegation zone.
