Nottingham Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis has been tested positive for COVID-19, but all staff and players have been tested negative.
However, given the rise of managers, players and squads now contracting the virus or in self isolation, the decision has been made to temporarily suspend the Championship and rest of the Football League.
No games will take place between now and April 4, with a decision to be made as to when the league can continue closer to the time, based upon expert advice.
The Championship is arguably the most competitive league in English football. It’s an incredibly tough division, perhaps highlighted by the fact that the vast majority have Premier League experience.
Last season was full of twists and turns, with the likes of Leeds and Derby perhaps worthy of promotion but ultimately being left behind.
Frank Lampard has since left the Rams, but with Wayne Rooney due to join in January, it’s once again going to be an exciting season.
