QPR’s Championship clash with Wycombe Wanderers will not be going ahead tomorrow, with the fixture postponed after the Chairboys reported positive Covid-19 tests.

Wycombe have not stated how many positive results were recorded or how many players or staff are affected, but have informed the English Football league that they would be unable to fulfil the fixture following the latest tests.

The circumstances surrounding the postponement will now be subject to an EFL investigation, with a new date for the fixture at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium yet to be confirmed.

The match is one of a number to have already been called off this weekend, with Brentford’s trip to Reading and Sheffield Wednesday’s meeting with Coventry City both also not going ahead. 

The lack of action will come as a blow to Rangers, who picked up their first win in 11 games on Tuesday night with a 2-0 success over Luton at Kenilworth Road, Charlie Austin finding the net on his second debut for the club. 

It will also delay the debut of fellow new signing Jordy de Wijs, after the Dutch defender joined the club on loan from League One side Hull City, with the hope that the move will become permanent in the summer. 

The 26-year-old has been a pivotal part of the Tigers’ backline at the start of this season, helping to keep five clean sheets in his nine appearances, before picking up an injury to leave him out of action since November. 

But that hasn’t stopped Mark Warburton from getting the defender to put pen to paper, with the Rs boss impressed by what he saw from the new recruit in his last two seasons in the second tier. 

“We are delighted to bring Jordy on board,” Warburton told the QPR website. 

“He is a proven Championship defender with real physicality and he possesses quality on the ball.

“He will add real competition to the squad in a very important position.

“As we know there are so many games in the Championship and we need to be sure we have that depth in all areas.”
