The club has confirmed that Republic of Ireland international Jack Byrne has tested positive for Covid-19 along with teammate Aaron Greene.

Rovers said "several other players within the squad will follow a period of isolation as close contacts".

Byrne tested positive while on international duty and the midfielder is now self-isolating in Dublin.

After a positive test on Sunday, Byrne did not travel to Finland for last night's game, which Ireland lost 1-0.

The game is due to be aired live on RTÉ at 7.45pm.
