Harrogate Town’s next three games have been postponed due to multiple coronavirus cases in the League Two squad.
With a number of players now unable to train together due to a required period of self-isolation, Harrogate’s league games against Crawley Town and Leyton Orient have been postponed, while their first-round Carabao Cup draw against Rochdale could be postponed, but is at risk of being scrapped altogether.
The game against Rochdale was to take place on August 10th, while the Crawley game was scheduled for August 14th and Harrogate would have played against Leyton Orient on August 17th.
A statement by the English Football League on Monday said: “Following discussions with the club, the league has agreed to Harrogate’s request to rearrange the league games with all parties to find alternative dates together, which will be confirmed in due course .
“With regard to the rescheduling of the Carabao Cup game, the league will consider any suggestion made by the club to be compliant with the tie.”
The second round of the Carabao Cup is to take place in the week from August 23rd.
Harrogate opened their 2021/22 season on Saturday with a 3-2 league win over Rochdale.
Warren Burrell scored the winning goal for Simon Weaver’s team in the 91st minute.
