- Third-round tie scheduled for Saturday called off
- Match would have to be fitted in before fourth round
Shrewsbury Town face having to forfeit their place in the FA Cup after their third-round match against Southampton was postponed following a number of positive coronavirus tests.
The Football Association’s Professional Game Board will meet early next week to decide whether the game can be rescheduled. However the FA stressed in a letter to clubs last Friday that the matches must go ahead if both teams had 14 fit registered players available – and if a club had to postpone a fixture then the Professional Game Board was likely to award the tie to their opponents.
