Ipswich striker Kayden Jackson missed the League One trip to Doncaster and faces at least 10 days out of action after testing positive for coronavirus.

Former Wrexham striker Jackson, pictured above, has been self-isolating since showing symptoms on Friday but the rest of the Town squad, including coaching staff, have returned blanket negative tests ahead of last night’s match at the Keepmoat Stadium.

“The most important thing is that Kayden is feeling a lot better now,” Ipswich physio Matt Byard told the club’s official website. “He was clearly unwell and was displaying moderate symptoms of the virus and with the test proving positive, he will be self-isolating for at least 10 days but it’s more likely to be 14.

“We tested all the first-team players and coaching staff first thing yesterday and the results have come back clear.

“It’s obviously a relief because we could have been missing several players or staff if the virus had been passed on. It’s a reminder to everyone about the situation we are all facing at the moment.”

Jackson, who spent the 2015-16 National League season with Wrexham, scoring four times, took to Twitter to voice his disappointment at missing a run of games.

He wrote: “Unfortunately I have been tested positive for coronavirus. I am feeling a lot better, and I am self isolating in line with the government guidelines. Will be supporting the boys from home and hope to be back on the pitch very soon! Thanks for all the messages!”

The Premier League says there have been eight positive results from the latest round of coronavirus testing.

A total of 1,575 players and club staff were tested between Monday, October 12 and Sunday, October 18.

Those who tested positive have not been identified and will self-isolate for a period of 10 days.

There were five positive tests between October 5-11 in the previous round of testing, following nine in the seven days before that.
