Tuesday's League One match between Swindon Town and Accrington Stanley has been called off because of positive coronavirus tests at both clubs.

The Robins reported "a number" of cases on Friday, while eight Stanley players returned positive results last week.

The circumstances surrounding the postponement will be investigated in accordance with EFL regulations.

A new date for the fixture will be announced in due course.
