Tottenham Hotspur’s trip to East London and League Two side Leyton Orient has been postponed.
A number of the O’s players and staff members in the squad for their Carabao Cup match have tested positive for coronavirus.
The game has been called off three hours before the third round tie was due to kick-off.
Leyton Orient were set to earn £150,000 from the game in TV revenue as it had been selected by Sky Sports as one of its four televised third round games.
Here’s the latest on what will happen to the match.
When will Leyton Orient vs Tottenham Hotspur be played?
A decision on rearranging the game has not yet been made.
If it is, it will add to an already congested fixture schedule for both clubs as well as the Carabao Cup itself, with the fourth round due to be played next week.
However, in news that could send shivers down spines of Orient bosses, teams in the FA Cup qualifying rounds have had to forfeit games after positive tests within their camps.
Tuesday’s other Carabao Cup ties are still due to go ahead.
In the pick of the night’s fixtures, Championship side Luton Town welcome Manchester United to Kenilworth Road at 8.15pm.
Earlier on, Newport County take on Watford at 7pm, the same time West Brom vs Brentford kicks off.
West Ham take on Hull at 7.30pm.

Orient and Spurs fans were due to watch Tuesday’s third round game on Sky Sports as it was one of four third round ties to be selected for TV coverage.
It’s not yet known if the match will be rearranged and shown by Sky.
Tuesday’s clash between Luton and Man Utd will still be shown on the broadcaster’s Main Event and Football channels.
Fans will need to pay as Carabao Cup games are not shown live on free-to-air TV. Those with subscriptions can stream the tie, either through Sky Go or Now TV, whichever platform they use to access Sky Sports.
