Grimsby Town will be without players for tomorrow’s visit from Yeovil Town after an outbreak of COVID-19 in the squad.

Boss Paul Hurst said he had “a couple of decisions” after cases came to light in his squad on Thursday, but he did not go as far as mentioning which players he could be without.

Speaking to the club’s YouTube channel, he said: “We have some COVID in the camp, so that will impact the squad and maybe some selection. There’s an inevitability about it looking at the wider picture.

“Unfortunately the headlines we are seeing about figures going through the roof, we think we have done things to stop it spreading.

“We’ve still got a squad for the game, but it has had an impact on what happens in terms of selection.”

There is no suggestion from anything coming out of Grimsby (well, Cleethorpes) to suggest tomorrow’s match is at risk.
