Queens Park Rangers have announced that Saturday’s game against Swansea City has been postponed.

The news comes after the continual rise of Covid cases in the Championship squad.

The fixture, due to be played on the 18th December, will be rearranged for next year.

QPR have stated there were “a number of positive Covid-19 cases in the first team.”

Working with the EFL, Rangers said “the league will review the circumstances of the postponement with a rearranged date for the fixture to be confirmed in due course.”

All match tickets bought will be valid for the rearranged fixture, which is set to be announced in due course.

It isn’t the first time QPR have had to postpone a match, as Monday’s away fixture against Sheffield United was also suspended.

8 points currently separate the two sides, with QPR in a play-off place at 5th on 35 points.

Swansea find themselves down at 16th place with 27 points following three consecutive losses.

The Swans were to enter the match against QPR after a stunning 4-1 loss to Nottingham Forest.

Previous to that, they were also overwhelmed by both Reading and Middlesborough through 3-2 and 1-0 losses.

The two sides will not play until after Christmas now, where Swansea travel to Millwall and QPR host Bournemouth – both on the 26th December.
