The list of EFL postponements over the festive period has continued to grow with Wednesday’s Championship games at Reading and Birmingham cancelled.
Reading’s match against Fulham is off because of Covid-19 cases and injuries in the Royals squad.
Birmingham and opponents Peterborough both suffered the loss of a second successive game when their scheduled meeting at St Andrew’s was called off.
Two other post-Boxing Day Championship games are also off.
Swansea City’s meeting with Luton Town, also on Wednesday, and West Bromwich Albion’s home game with Preston a day later will not go ahead because of coronavirus cases.
Birmingham, whose trip to Fulham on Boxing Day was postponed after too many Covid cases. say they do not have “a sufficient number of players available”.
A statement from injury-hit Birmingham said: “With a short turnaround time between fixtures, there was an insufficient window for players to return from isolation or recover from injury.
“Once again, the number of Covid-19 cases within the men’s first-team group meet the EFL threshold.”
Peterborough also had their scheduled Boxing Day home match with Reading called off – another of the 24 out of 33 EFL games which did not go ahead on 26 December, all because of cases of coronavirus.
Three League One games are off over the coming days, and seven in League Two, while four of Tuesday’s programme of National League matches have also been postponed.
