Orient, who were held to a two-all draw by Mansfield Town on Saturday afternoon, are scheduled to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup tomorrow night, but could face a postponement following today's news.

A statement, released via their official website, confirmed; Today (Monday 21st) we received formal confirmation which shows that a number of our first-team squad have tested positive for COVID-19.

We have informed the EFL and Tottenham Hotspur and will make a further announcement regarding Tuesday’s match shortly.

We have also informed Mansfield Town, Plymouth Argyle and Oldham Athletic, our three most recent opponents, prior to the public release of this information.

Leyton Orient’s priority is the health and well-being of its players and staff. Those who have tested positive will now strictly follow government self-isolation guidelines.

The Breyer Group Stadium and training ground facilities will be closed until further notice. At this time, the club will make no further comment.
