Raith Rovers have announced that the club has suffered a Covid-19 outbreak and has asked for a match to be postponed as a result.

The Championship side have asked the SPFL to call off Saturday’s scheduled match against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Rovers say that players and backroom staff have tested positive for coronavirus and will now be self-isolating.

A statement on the club website read: “The club is currently dealing with an outbreak of COVID-19 amongst the playing and backroom staff.

“We have applied to the SPFL for postponement of this Saturday’s match v Inverness Caledonian Thistle, and are awaiting a response.

“In the meantime, we are co-operating fully with the appropriate authorities.

“Further updates will follow.”

The request comes just days after all football below Championship level was suspended amid tighter lockdown restrictions.
