The EFL Suspends Wycombe’s Game With QPR

A statement on the Wycombe Wanderers website read: “Wycombe Wanderers’ next Sky Bet Championship fixture against Queens Park Rangers, due to take place tomorrow, 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 postponements will now be the subject of an investigation in accordance with EFL Regulations.

“Revised dates for the rearranged fixture will be confirmed in due course.”

It’s a major setback for Gareth Ainsworth who would have been gearing his side up for a crucial clash with fellow strugglers QPR. The Chairboys are desperate for wins, with the club sat bottom of the Championship table, four points off safety.

FA Cup Fourth Round Tie With Tottenham Hotspur in Doubt

With the news that Wycombe must self-isolate, their FA Cup tie with Tottenham due to take place on Monday 25th January is now in doubt.

The Chairboys, like many sides, face a difficult period where fixtures will pile up. This news regarding Wycombe’s positive tests will concern Jose Mourinho and Tottenham as their season intensifies with the return of the Europa League in February.

They already face games in hand following Aston Villa’s coronavirus outbreak. Wycombe themselves now face fixture congestion with their crucial clash with QPR now postponed. The Chairboys are set for a busy period in what is an already packed Championship campaign.
