The EFL has confirmed that upcoming midweek fixtures are set to go ahead as planned.

However, the action is now due to return – including Cambridge United's Sky Bet League One trip to Cheltenham Town tomorrow night.

An EFL statement read: “The EFL fixture programme will return as scheduled from Tuesday, September 13, with tributes to be paid to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II at grounds around the country.

“A minute’s silence will be held before matches, with black armbands to be worn by participants, flags to be flown at half mast and the national anthem to be played in stadiums.

“With a national policing plan now in operation, the league and clubs will continue to work with forces in respect of any challenges that may emerge regarding policing of specific fixtures.

“Consideration to individual circumstances will be made on a case-by-case basis, in line with standard match Safety Advisory Group (SAG) protocols.”

Hosting Cheltenham go into the clash sitting 22nd in the table while Cambridge are fifth.
