Brighton confirm player has tested positive for coronavirus

Thursday 26th March 2020 15:15 GMT

Three unnamed members of Albion's squad underwent tests after showing symptoms of Covid-19, with one returning positive.

"We've had three players tested, one has tested positive. We're not testing them routinely, we're only testing them when symptoms emerge," Barber said during a press conference hosted by video link.

"But the one that tested positive was just today, so that's unfortunate but he's OK and he's obviously getting the care that he needs at the moment."

Meanwhile, Brighton and fellow Premier League club Bournemouth have guaranteed a minimum of 1,000 tickets for frontline NHS staff to attend future matches.
