A positive test for Covid-19 has been confirmed by Middlesbrough following the latest round of testing at Rockliffe Park.

The EFL released results of screening carried out on Thursday and Friday, with ten in the Championship returning as positive.

Seven positive tests were confirmed in League Two.

A total of 1,058 tests were carried out in Championship clubs on Thursday and Friday; four clubs and 135 individuals took part from League Two.

All of those who tested positive will begin a period of self-isolation.

Boro, Fulham and Cardiff have each confirmed one positive test from the most recent round of testing, while Preston North End revealed striker Jayden Stockley was among the ten.

Stockley was described by his club "asymptomatic and feeling no ill effects" and he said: "It came as a complete shock. I got a call from the doctor when I came back from training.

"I felt brilliant in training, put a good session in and his number came up. We were aware we would get a call if our test was positive and I was thinking 'no, surely not', but he told me and it was a surreal moment.

"You feel like you are untouchable and you are going to ride through it."

The four League Two clubs in the latest round of testing were Exeter, Cheltenham, Colchester and Northampton, teams who occupy the four play-off spots. There has been no testing in League One as clubs have yet to decide on the outcome of their season, with a vote taking place this week.

Teams in League Two have already indicated they wish to end the season but the promotion play-offs are expected to go ahead.

Colchester have had four people testing positive, while Northampton confirmed their physiotherapist Ignacio Herrando was their only positive test.

Exeter returned two positives and Cheltenham none.
