Taylor Wants More EFL Testing
The manager of Exeter City, Matt Taylor, has asked for help to get more coronavirus screening for EFL clubs, as the clubs cannot afford to pay for them. Taylor said: “I know my players and staff would be more comfortable [with regular testing], but who foots the bill? In terms of the play-off campaign, the EFL contributed to that testing protocol, but they’ve said they won’t do that moving forward in terms of the league campaign. Leyton Orient were only able to get tested because Tottenham offered to pay for it, which shows you the cost involved for lower-league clubs. We can’t afford to test continuously, certainly not twice a week, so it puts ourselves in an unknown because now we’re working and we’re active and we’re travelling.” The tests cost around £100 per person.
Orient Game Off
Leyton Orient’s game in League Two against Walsall on Saturday is postponed due to 17 players and staff at Orient testing positive for coronavirus. Orient felt that they were “unable to safely fulfil” Saturday’s fixture.
