Rotherham United can confirm that our upcoming Sky Bet Championship fixture against Brentford on Saturday 6th March 2021 has been postponed following a number of positive tests for Covid-19 within our first-team squad.
Having consulted with club and EFL doctors and following discussions with Brentford, the club have been advised to postpone Saturday’s clash against the Bees.
As a result, the Millers training HQ at Roundwood will also be closed in an attempt to control the outbreak of the virus with immediate effect.
The extent of the outbreak will be monitored by medical staff over the coming days with Tuesday’s fixture against Luton Town set to take place as planned until otherwise announced.
The rearranged fixture against the Bees will take place on Tuesday 27th April, kick-off 7pm.
EFL STATEMENT: ROTHERHAM UNITED
Rotherham United’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against Brentford on Saturday 6 March has been suspended.
The Club informed the EFL that they would be unable to fulfil the fixture following recent positive COVID-19 tests and the requirement for players and staff to self-isolate as per EFL and Government guidance in order to mitigate against the risk of further infection.
The circumstances surrounding the postponement will now be the subject of an investigation in accordance with EFL Regulations.
