Hartlepool fixture postponed

28 December 2021

Tranmere Rovers’ Sky Bet League Two fixture versus Hartlepool United on Wednesday 29 December has been postponed. 

Tranmere Rovers informed the EFL that it would be unable to fulfil the fixture at Victoria Park Stadium due to a number of positive COVID-19 cases in their squad. 

The Club has worked hard to ensure that it has been able to fulfil all fixtures. However, taking into account the injuries and positive COVID-19 cases with the squad, the Club does not have a sufficient number of players available in order to fulfil the fixture.

In light of the increased transmission rate of the Omicron variant, the EFL will now review the circumstances surrounding the postponement.  In addition it will assist affected Clubs throughout this challenging period to help them mitigate against the risk of infection amongst players and staff, while ensuring their obligations to the EFL regulations are maintained. 

A rearranged date for the fixture will be confirmed in due course.
