Following another round of COVID testing which took place on Monday (23rd November), Southend United can confirm that tonight’s fixture will go ahead as scheduled against Forest Green Rovers.
A number of Southend United scholars were included in the round of testing within a time frame that enabled the results to come back within sufficient time.
All available players that were tested came back negative, allowing the club to safely name a matchday squad.
Those who tested positive last week, along with one other who came into close contact, will not be available for selection as they continue to self-isolate, and everybody at the club wishes them a speedy recovery.
