Two individuals from the same Championship club - Hull City - have tested positive for coronavirus, the EFL has announced.

A total of 1014 players and staff from all 24 Championship clubs were tested over the past 72 hours, and the results reflect an almost identical ratio to those reported in the Premier League’s second wave of testing.

In a statement the EFL said: “The EFL can confirm that 1014 players and Club staff from all 24 Championship Clubs have been tested for COVID-19 over the course of the last 72 hours, with two individuals testing positive from one club.

“Those players or club staff who have tested positive will now self-isolate in line with the guidelines provided by the EFL and only those who have tested negative will be permitted to enter training ground facilities.

“The EFL will continue to make regular and relevant announcements as appropriate in respect of the testing programme to support competition integrity and transparency.

“No specific details as to Clubs or individuals will be provided by the League.”

However, a Hull statement said the pair were asymptomatic and feeling no ill effects, but would self-isolate for seven days in line with EFL guidelines.

They will both be tested again at a later date.

The Tigers did not confirm whether the positive tests were from players or staff.

The results will encourage those who wish to see a resumption of the Championship season next month, with talks ongoing between officials in both the second tier and League One.

Earlier on Sunday, Bournemouth revealed that one of their players is among the two positive tests recorded among the latest 996 tests on Premier League players and staff.

Although all positive tests are announced anonymously, Bournemouth took the step of revealing they were one of the two top flight clubs affected by the lastest tests.

A Bournemouth statement read: “AFC Bournemouth can confirm that one of its players has tested positive for Covid-19, following the club’s second round of testing.

“Medical confidentiality means the player’s name will not be disclosed, and the club asks for this to be respected.

“In line with Premier League protocols regarding positive tests, he will self-isolate for a period of seven days before being tested again at a later date.

“Following strict adherence of the Premier League’s return to training regulations, the club’s training ground remains a safe working environment for players and backroom staff, who will continue to be tested for Covid-19 twice per week.”
