Nottingham Forest face playing the rest of the Championship season behind closed doors, after it was announced fans will return to games from May 17, at the earliest.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has outlined his roadmap for exiting lockdown, having made a statement to Parliament this afternoon – with a televised press conference due to follow at 7pm this evening.

Supporters could be allowed back in stadiums under step 3 of the plans, with up a crowd of up to 10,000 or 25 percent capacity, whichever is the smaller.

English stadiums with 40,000 seats will be allowed 10,000 fans, and smaller ones will be allowed to be at quarter capacity from May 17 at the earliest.
