Forest Green Rovers won't play again this month after the EFL postponed all games due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Teams in the Championship, League One and League Two won't play again until Friday, April 3, at the earliest, following a decision taken by the EFL.

All academy activities, including fixtures and training, have also been postponed until the same date.

Forest Green's game today at The New Lawn against Northampton Town has been postponed as well as the following:

Morecambe (H) - March 17

Crewe (A) - March 21

Cheltenham (H) - March 28

Leyton Orient (H) - March 31

If games were to resume from April 3, Rovers' next game would be a trip to promotion chasing Plymouth Argyle on April 4.

The FA, Premier League, EFL and Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship collectively agreed to postpone the professional game in England at a meeting this morning.

This action, which will be kept under constant review, was taken due to the increasing numbers of clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the COVID-19 virus.

In addition, clubs are being advised to suspend indefinitely all non-essential activities which include, but are not limited to, player appearances, training ground visits and fan meetings.

Forest Green Rovers chairman responded to the news, tweeting: "Surprised, but understand the reasons, seems to be based on increasing numbers of players in isolation rather than public safety.

"Otherwise, games could be behind closed doors.

"Problem is, I don’t think things will be better in early April, infection rates are going up not down."
