King's Lynn Town's long trip to Altrincham on Tuesday night is off.

The National League game has been postponed because of a case of coronavirus in the home camp.

A statement on Lynn's official web site read: "Please note that tomorrow’s scheduled game against Altrincham has been postponed due to a positive Covid test in the opposition camp. We wish the player involved a speedy recovery and will confirm the new date in due course."

Lynn are without a game this weekend so their next action is at home to Wealdstone on September 25.

Altrincham also posted a statement which read: "Altrincham's next two Vanarama National League fixtures have been postponed after a member of the Robins' first-team squad returned a positive test for Covid-19.

"With a number of players having to self-isolate for 10 days as a consequence of the positive test, the decision was taken to postpone the King's Lynn and Yeovil (Saturday) games and rearrange them at a later date."
