The Blues squad are to resume training on Monday.

Players will workout at the Trillion Trophy Training Centre, Wast Hills, in small groups - or 'tailored' training, as the EFL describes it.

It will be the first time Pep Clotet and his backroom staff are able to oversee the players as a collective. Every player has been following an individual training programme since football was suspended at the end of March.

Players and staff will adhere to the EFL's Return to Training Protocols (RTT), which can be viewed on the League's website.

Players will train in groups of no more than five people, with two groups arriving at Wast Hills at staggered times during the day.

Each group will train on their own pitch and the sessions cannot include tackling or opposed activities.

Players have to arrive changed into their own kit, bring their own drinks and maintain social distancing at all times.

All surfaces, areas and equipment will be disinfected after each session.

Buildings such as changing rooms, gym, cafeteria, offices remain closed.

All players and staff were tested for COVID-19 this week as part of the RTT guidelines put in place as the latest steps towards the conclusion of the 2019/20 Championship season.

The EFL have stated that they will announce the following data once players and staff at all clubs have been tested: the number of tests taken and the number of positive cases (if any). The EFL are not releasing individual club data.

Please note: the Trillion Trophy Training Ground, Wast Hills, remains on lockdown and closed to the public and visitors.
