Another of this evening's SSE Airtricity League fixtures has been postponed after Wexford FC confirmed a positive case of Covid-19 amongst their squad.

Currently bottom of the First Division, the Ferrycarrig Park club were due to be heading up the east coast to take on title challengers Drogheda United later.

But the game is off, with the FAI saying in a statement that there had been the "potential identification" of close contacts to the player who tested positive within the squad.

The club have clarified that the player is asymptomatic.

It comes at the end of a difficult week for the south-eastern side who were deducted points for fielding an illegible player.

The news follows on from Wexford GAA confirming six positive test results between their senior hurling and football squads.

Meanwhile, it's the second postponement in the League of Ireland this week after Shamrock Rovers saw three of their fixtures re-arranged yesterday.

Earlier this month both St Patrick's Athletic and Galway United had to postpone games after positive test results in their respective squads.

The season has already been extended owing to the number of matches that have had to be re-arranged.
