COLCHESTER United are set to have a full squad to choose from for their play-off tomorrow night after their latest round of Covid-19 testing returned no positive results.

The EFL have confirmed that no individuals tested positive for coronavirus over the course of the past week at any of the four clubs who are contesting the League Two play-offs, in the coming days.

A total of 174 players and club staff were tested from Colchester, Exeter City, Cheltenham Town and Northampton Town.

It is the fourth successive time that Colchester have recorded no positive tests for Covid-19 from their players and club staff, as they build up to their big two-legged affair against Exeter.

Prior to that, four of the U's players and staff tested positive for Covid-19 during the testing that had taken place on Thursday (May 28) and Friday (May 29).

Colchester's players are preparing to take on Exeter in the first leg of their League Two play-off, tomorrow night.

John McGreal's side will then travel to Exeter next Monday (June 22) for the second leg, with a 5.15pm kick-off.

The League Two play-off final will then take place at Wembley on June 29, with a 7.30pm kick-off.

Tests for coronavirus are taking place twice a week at clubs who have returned to training.

In keeping with guidelines, every U's player or member of staff who attends their Florence Park training ground must complete a screening protocol to detect any symptoms in a manner devised by the club doctor, prior to entering the venue.

Colchester's players and staff are also being required to complete a daily medical questionnaire submitted before arrival at the training ground on training days.

If this is not submitted before arrival, access to the training ground will be denied.

As the fixture programme resumes, the EFL will make a central announcement of Covid-19 test results every Wednesday at midday to continue to support competition integrity and transparency.

No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League.
