Sheffield United's final pre-season friendly still on despite Norwich City's Covid-19

Sheffield United's final fixture of a Covid-19 disrupted pre-season is still due to go ahead at this stage despite positive tests in the Norwich City camp.

FRIENDLY: Norwich City's Grant Hanley challenges David McGoldrick for the ball the last time the sides met, at Bramall Lane in the last match before the first Covid-19 lockdown

The newly-promoted Premier League side called off Wednesday's friendly against Coventry City as a "precautionary measure" after what they described as "a small number of positive Covid-19 test results within City’s first-team group."

The Canaries are due at Bramall Lane on Saturday for what is supposed to be the Blades final friendly before they open their Championship campaign at home to Birmingham City on the evening of August 7. It is also due to be new manager Slavisa Jokanovic's first game at his new home ground.
