Cardiff City’s Championship fixture against Derby this weekend has been postponed due to Covid outbreaks in both camps.

The Bluebirds join Swansea City in having their Saturday fixtures suspended – both for the same reasons.

This makes it the fifth match in the Championship to be cancelled so far, with Sheffield United v QPR, QPR v Swansea, Millwall v Preston and Reading v Luton amongst the five.

Cardiff announced: “Due to a number of positive COVID-19 tests being recorded today at Cardiff City and Derby County’s training facilities, a decision between both clubs has been taken following consultation with the EFL to postpone Saturday’s fixture.”

“Details in respect of a re-arranged date will follow in due course.”

“Season Tickets will remain valid for the re-arranged fixture. All match tickets purchased for this game will also remain valid for the rearranged date.”

Derby boss Wayne Rooney warned of positive cases in the squad prior to the match cancellation.

He said: “Unfortunately we have had a few more cases, players and staff,”

“There are discussions going on at the minute with the EFL to see whether the game goes ahead on Saturday.

“Basically our medical team has been wiped out, and we have had more players get it. From my point of view it is very unlikely the game will go ahead. We are awaiting on confirmation from the EFL.”

Rooney warned that the medical team had been “wiped out” prior to an official postponement of the tie against Cardiff

Cardiff have also postponed their Christmas family run – scheduled for Tuesday, December 21st.

The Bluebirds said: “Due to current COVID concerns, our Family Fun Day, scheduled to take place on Tuesday, December 21st, 2021, has sadly been postponed.”
