The results from the first round of Covid-19 testing among Championship players is set to be published on Sunday.

Rovers underwent their testing today, with 27 players and 17 staff tested ahead of Monday’s return to training, a requirement of the EFL guidelines.

The players will train in groups of no more than five, and adhering to social distancing, with temperature checks conducted ahead of all sessions.

On Sunday, the EFL say it will announce the results of the initial testing phase, carried out by Championship clubs on Thursday and Friday.

The results will include the number of tests undertaken, and the number of positive cases, but no individual club date will be provided.

The decision on whether to publish those details will be left in the hands of each individual club.

Rovers carried out the tests under the supervision of Dr Chris Dalton and head of physio Andy Mitchell, with the EFL having commissioned Nationwide Pathology to support the testing of EFL players and staff as part of the first phase of its return to training protocols.

The EFL said: “There will be a flexible approach to testing, with a combination of procedures conducted by independent testers, club medical staff and some self-testing as required.

“The accuracy of these tests is aligned with Government guidelines and, for the avoidance of any doubt, availability to Clubs will not impact NHS testing resources or prevent other individuals from receiving a test as required.

“Championship clubs' testing procedures will be done in a combination of ways - some by independent testers, some by club medical staff and some will ask players to self-test.”

Twice-weekly tests will continue, with the EFL hoping to have the remaining Championship fixtures concluded by July 31, as previous outlined.

However, the league announced League One and Two players have not been tested and therefore cannot return to training on Monday.
