TOMORROW’S SSE AIRTRICITY Premier Division match between Sligo Rovers and Waterford has been postponed due to a suspected Covid-19 case among the Waterford squad.

A statement from the league this morning says that the player did not take the field in Saturday’s meeting with Shelbourne, but did travel for the match with his team-mates.

With the player reporting symptoms of Covid-19, he has not since trained and the club suspended their training session ahead of a test for the suspected case.

The statement adds: “The FAI’s medical team will now review all aspects of this case before making any further decisions.”

The Airtricity League returned to competitive action on Friday nearly five months after the new 2020 season was called to a halt.
