Preston North End can confirm that our game against West Bromwich Albion on 30th December has been postponed.
The club informed the EFL on Sunday morning that it would be unable to fulfil the fixture due to the ongoing Covid-19 cases within the squad, including an additional positive test over the weekend.
The training ground remains closed in order to mitigate any potential further spread of the virus.
The club has worked hard to ensure that it has been able to fulfil the fixture. However, taking into account the injuries and positive COVID-19 cases within the squad, the club does not have a sufficient number of players available in order to fulfil the fixture.
We apologise for the disappointment that this postponement causes to supporters of both clubs, however the priority remains the health and safety of everybody connected with the club at this time.
Match tickets will remain valid for the rearranged fixture, with a date to be confirmed in due course, but those supporters who wish to claim a refund can do so by emailing email@example.com or calling 0344 856 1966.
