Doncaster Rovers have an extra game in their upcoming run of games at short notice after the EFL insisted their postponed clash with Cambridge United be rescheduled for next week.

The Abbey Stadium, home of Cambridge United

Cambridge were forced to call off the clash at the Abbey Stadium, set for December 30, due to the Covid-19 outbreak at the club.

The EFL demand that matches are rearranged at the earliest possible point.

And with United still competing in the FA Cup and Papa John’s Trophy, the organising body have insisted the game be played on January 18, with a 7.45pm kick-off.
