Ipswich Town defender Luke Woolfenden has started a 14-day period of self isolation after reporting close contact with an individual who has tested positive for Covid-19.

The 21-year-old didn’t train yesterday and has dropped out of the Blues team that will take on League One promotion rivals Sunderland at the Stadium of Light this evening.

He will also have to sit out this weekend’s FA Cup first round tie with Portsmouth at Portman Road, as well as the EFL Trophy match at Crawley on November 10.
