Reading's first game back, as the Championship resumes, is still set to go ahead on 20 June, despite the opposition manager testing positive for Covid-19. Having tested negative in previous tests Stoke City boss Michael O'Neill returned a positive result on Monday and has gone into isolation. Stoke were due to play Manchester United in a friendly game yesterday but the match was cancelled shortly before kick-off.

No other Stoke players or first team squad staff have had a positive result, but should other positive results come through then there remains a strong chance the game could be postponed.
