Sunderland to continue push for promotion despite covid scare at the club

Sunderland's League One promotion push will continue this weekend, despite another Covid scare at the club.

The Black Cats returned two positive tests at the start of the week.

It caused the squad to miss a day's training - but all subsequent tests have been negative.

SAFC side take on Bristol Rovers as planned on Saturday.

Sunderland have won 8 of their last 10 games, and a further win for Lee Johnson's side could take up into the automatic promotion places.
