There were 1,179 people tested over the past four days in the second tier, and those who tested positive will self-isolate, in line with EFL guidelines.

Both the Premier League and League One confirmed there were no positive tests received, with one positive test in League Two, at Exeter City.

More than 5,000 tests on players and staff have been carried out in the Championship since May 21, with 26 individuals testing positive.

The Championship has set a provisional restart date of June 20 and players have been back in training for more than a week, although only those who have returned negative tests are allowed to enter training grounds.
