DEAN KEATES is hoping there are no further coronavirus cases at the club and Wrexham will return to action against Dover Athletic next weekend.

Keates revealed that two players have tested positive for Covid-19, meaning Saturday's clash with Woking at The Racecourse and Tuesday's trip to Eastleigh have been postponed.

The Reds' squad are now isolating ahead of the next scheduled fixture at home to Dover on Saturday January 16.

"We've had two cases," said Keates. "One is okay now after having all the symptoms but not severe having tested positive.

"The second one was a lot more severe with his symptoms.

"He did not sound the best when I spoke with him. It's hit him for six.

"We support the players as much as we can and are always there for them."

Wrexham, whose last game was the 2-0 defeat at Stockport on December 28, are due to report back for training in the run-up to the Dover clash.

"It's not ideal but it is not just us, it is everybody else involved in football and life in general," said Keates.

"We are isolating at the moment. We are due back in on Wednesday if we don't get any more cases within our bubble; no-one is showing any symptoms.

"That will give us a few days to prep and get ready for the Dover game."

However, Dover have only played 10 games this season - seven less than other teams in the division - and have had coronavirus postponements of their own, putting their match against Wrexham in danger of being called off.

"I am mindful that Dover have had or two issues with it and have had games called off," said Keates.

"I am hopeful our home game will go ahead but a marker has kind of been put out there so it is watch this space regarding that one.

"But hopefully within our camp, we get no more symptoms once the players have isolated and all being well Dover get none too and we can look forward to the game."
