CITY’S League Two rivals Leyton Orient have today confirmed that “a number of players” have tested positive for COVID.

Orient, who are due to play Tottenham tomorrow in the Carabao Cup, said those concerned will self-isolate. The club have also contacted their most recent opponents.

The tests were carried out after Saturday’s game against Mansfield – with the London club receiving the news today that some had been positive.

A statement said: "We have informed the EFL and Tottenham Hotspur and will make a further announcement regarding Tuesday’s match shortly.

"We have also informed Mansfield Town, Plymouth Argyle and Oldham Athletic, our three most recent opponents, prior to the public release of this information.

"Leyton Orient’s priority is the health and well-being of its players and staff. Those who have tested positive will now strictly follow government self-isolation guidelines.

"The Breyer Group Stadium and training ground facilities will be closed until further notice. At this time, the club will make no further comment."

The Bantams are not due to play Leyton Orient until November 24. The return fixture at Valley Parade takes place on February 23.

A statement from the league this afternoon said: “The EFL has been made aware of positive test results recorded at Leyton Orient and is currently awaiting the outcome of discussions between the club and Public Health England which will determine what, if any, action is required outside of adhering to current protocols and guidance.”
