Ipswich Town's long-awaited return to action tomorrow night has cleared the final hurdle, with news that Swindon Town's coronavirus tests all came back negative.

The Robins visit Portman Road for a 5.30pm kick-off tomorrow night, in a match which will be screened live on Sky Sports.

It will be Town's first match since a 2-1 win over Burton Albion on December 15.

The Blues players and staff all returned negative tests earlier this week.

In a statement, Swindon said: "On the day of testing at Swindon Town Football Club (Tuesday 5th January), we can confirm there were no positive COVID tests at the club."
