Promising news as Lincoln City's training ground reopens ahead of weekend game against Blackpool
Lincoln City's training ground has reopened today following a recent Covid-19 outbreak ahead of Saturday's meeting with Blackpool.
The Imps were forced to lock down their training ground for 10 days after a number of players and staff tested positive for the coronavirus.
Their Easter fixtures against MK Dons and Charlton Athletic were also postponed.
But, according to Lincolnshire Live, the training ground has reopened today and Saturday's game at Sincil Bank is set to go ahead.
Lincoln's players and staff will also be tested today.
According to reports, it is hoped Michael Appleton's side will resume training "later this week" ahead of the weekend's game.
If the game were to be postponed, neither side would have a free midweek between now and the end of the season to play the rearranged fixture.
Lincoln now sit in sixth, directly below Blackpool in the league table having fallen away from the automatic promotion spots after winning just two of their last 13 games.
The Imps now occupy the final play-off spot, three points clear of Charlton and Ipswich Town.
