Nottingham Forest players will reportedly not be back in group training until the 14th of April at the very least amid the current delay to the Championship season.
All EFL fixtures have been suspended until at least the 30th of April, though reports have suggested the delay will be longer than that.
With precautionary measures in place across the country to restrict the spread of the virus, people are being urged to stay in their homes.
Obviously, that’s had an impact on the players’ training and has meant they’re having to keep fully fit away from their teammates.
It appears they will need to do that for at least a little while longer as, according to Teesside Live, the EFL has written to clubs to say that group training should not resume until the 14th of April at the earliest.
The EFL are set to hold further meetings this week about plans moving forward and for the conclusion of the season.
It is understood that the suspension of group training could be extended depending on guidance from the government, the EFL or the FA.
Michael Dawson revealed last week that the players have been given training regimes and are in touch with staff regularly about fitness.

It makes sense that clubs have been told there should not be any group training by the EFL but you feel that 14th of April date is likely to be pushed back given
It must be tough for the players both physically and mentally as they don’t know when they’ll be back in training and on the pitch.
At this point, it is very difficult to predict how things will develop and when we will see the season resume.
