Norwich City cancel Coventry pre-season friendly because of Covid-19 cases

Norwich City's pre-season match against Championship side Coventry City has been cancelled because of a number of Covid-19 cases in the Canaries' squad.

The news comes after keeper Angus Gunn and midfielder Jacob Sorensen tested positive for the virus last week.

Norwich make their Premier League return against Liverpool on 14 August.

The club said the decision to cancel Wednesday's friendly was "a precautionary measure" following "a small number" of positive test results.

"The club's players and staff will continue to follow Premier League protocols and government guidelines, operating and training in their respective first-team bubble," said a Canaries statement.
