Town striker Kayden Jackson was told to stay away from training on Friday after demonstrating symptoms of the virus. The 26-year-old missed the 2-0 win over Accrington Stanley on Saturday.

The squad and staff were tested on Monday morning as a precaution and are expected to receive their results in advance of their trip to the Keepmoat on Tuesday.

EFL guidelines state that any person who tests positive must self-isolate for ten days.
