The EFL has revealed that there were two positive tests among the 1,014 players and staff that were tested by Championship clubs this week.

The two positive tests came from one club, since revealed to be Hull City, and those two individuals will now be required to self-isolate for seven days.

Testing was an essential requirement for clubs ahead of a return to training tomorrow, with Rovers conducting their testing at the Academy base at Brockhall.

The club tested 27 players and 17 staff members in all and have followed the EFL's return to training protocols ahead of their return on Monday. 

With no positive tests recorded, the club will return to training, as planned, tomorrow.

In a statement, the Tigers said: "Medical confidentiality means the names will not be disclosed, and the club asks for this to be respected.

"The duo, who are both asymptomatic and feeling no ill effects, will now self-isolate for seven days – in line with the protocols set out in EFL guidelines – before being tested again at a later date."

An EFL statement read: "The EFL can confirm that 1014 players and club staff from all 24 Championship Clubs have been tested for COVID-19 over the course of the last 72 hours, with two individuals testing positive from one Club.

"Those players or Club staff who have tested positive will now self-isolate in line with the guidelines provided by the EFL and only those who have tested negative will be permitted to enter training ground facilities.

"The EFL will continue to make regular and relevant announcements as appropriate in respect of the testing programme to support competition integrity and transparency.

"No specific details as to Clubs or individuals will be provided by the league."
