The club confirmed their players are self-isolating in line with government guidelines amid the current coronavirus lockdown.

Chief executive Brian Caldwell said: “We are aware of posts on social media recently on the Instagram account of defender Scott Golbourne, however, all players and staff have been self-isolating in line with government guidance.

“The club have reminded all staff to follow the government advice at all times.”

Town have seen games against Crewe Alexandra in League One and Southampton in the FA Cup postponed as well this Saturday’s clash with Lincoln City having to be rescheduled amid the outbreak.

Several players and staff members have gone down with the virus in recent weeks.
