Rotherham United can confirm that this afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against Derby County has been postponed following a positive test of Covid-19 for a member of Paul Warne’s squad, with further players within the first team bubble showing symptoms of the virus at present.
Following conversations with the EFL and the subsequent medical advice provided by them and that of our own club doctors, the club have taken the decision to request a postponement to the fixture which has been approved by the EFL.
The game which was set to take place at AESSEAL New York Stadium on Saturday 19th December 2020 will now be rearranged.
The EFL have sanctioned the postponement of the fixture as a matter of player safety, which of course remains paramount to both ourselves and Derby County.
The club will be making no further comment at this time.
