Luton have announced that tomorrow's Sky Bet Championship match against Queens Park Rangers has been postponed due to positive coronavirus tests within the club's squad.

The Hatters had been due to host Mark Warburton's Rangers team at Kenilworth Road, with a 3pm kick-off, but a statement on Town's official website said: "Positive Covid test results have recently been returned by some of the club’s senior players, football staff and immediate members of family, meaning other players and staff who have come into close contact must also isolate.

"We are awaiting further testing which unfortunately cannot be completed by official EFL procedures before tomorrow’s 3pm kick-off, so the league has agreed to postpone the fixture based on our own recommendation and the league's medical advice.

"The game will be rearranged to be played as soon as possible, details of which will be communicated to supporters in due course.

"All positive cases involving players and staff will observe a period of self-isolation in accordance with EFL and the government’s protocols, and The Brache training ground will close while the rest of the squad and staff bubble undergo official EFL testing.

"The health and safety of all at the club and the wider community is paramount, and although we can report that none of those testing positive have a serious illness at this stage, we wish those players, staff and family members affected a speedy recovery as we do all we can to stop the spread of the virus."
