Southampton’s FA Cup third-round game at home to Shrewsbury Town will not take place as scheduled this Saturday.

The club received notice of the decision from the Football Association this morning, after a number of Shrewsbury players and staff members tested positive for Covid-19.

A meeting of The FA’s Professional Game Board will take place early next week to make a decision as to what will happen with the fixture, and we will update supporters as soon as we have any further information.

The club would also like to send its best wishes to the players and staff affected at Shrewsbury, and we wish them all a speedy recovery.
