A further 11 positive coronavirus cases have been reported from last week's round of Football League testing, taking the total number of positive tests to 123 for the week.

A statement from the EFL said: "The EFL can confirm that an additional 531 players and club staff from six EFL clubs were tested as part of last week’s mandatory testing programme, with a further 11 positive cases returned.

"The figures mean that in total, 4,038 players and club staff were tested over the period of Monday, January 4 to Sunday, January 10, with 123 individuals testing positive.

"This included 31 EFL clubs returning zero positive tests.

"Players or club staff who have tested positive will self-isolate for a period of 10 days in line with Government guidance."
