AFC Dons match v Wigan called off due to positive Covid results


By Paul Lagan

AFC Wimbledon’s League One match against Wigan Athletic at Plough Lane on Wednesday has been called off due positive COVID-19 results in the away team’s camp.

The Dons were told to play Saturday’s match at home to Lincoln City despite having four players with Covid and one player self-isolating.

The Dons lost 2-1 and now sit one place above the relegation zone.

Wigan are second-bottom in the league.

A Dons spokesman said: “ AFC Wimbledon’s home game against Wigan Athletic will not take place on Wednesday, January 6 with a decision taken to postpone it. “An EFL statement said that Wigan informed the league that they would be unable to fulfil their next two fixtures following several positive COVID-19 tests and the requirements for players and staff to self-isolate, as per EFL and government guidance. “The circumstances surrounding the postponements will now be subject of an investigation, in accordance with EFL regulations. “We will announce a rearranged date for the Wigan game in due course.”
