Spurs’ League Cup match at virus-hit Orient called off

Yesterday’s League Cup third round match between Tottenham Hotspur and Leyton Orient has been called off after a number of Orient players tested positive for COVID-19, Sky Sports reported.

Orient confirmed on Monday that some of its players had tested positive and that its Breyer Group Stadium and training ground facilities would be closed until further notice. The English Football League said it was waiting for the outcome of the discussions between the club and Public Health England before taking any action. Orient, a London-based team in the fourth division, had also informed Mansfield Town, Plymouth Argyle and Oldham Athletic — three of its most recent opponents — prior to the public release of the information.
