Morning Catch Up | Wednesday's state of play
Irish international Josh Cullen was one of two players, as well as manager David Moyes, from West Ham, to test positive for Covid-19, yesterday evening.
Cullen and teammate Issa Diop, were due to start in last night's Carabao Cup tie with Hull City, but were advised of their positive test results before kick-off. Opponents Hull though, were happy to proceed, with The Hammers running out comfortable 5-1 winners.
In the same competition, Carlow native Padraig Amond, helped his League Two side, Newport County, dump Watford out in the nights biggest upset.
As has often been the case in recent years, when Newport have caused an upset, of which they are now synonymous with, the Irish player has a role to play, and last night was no different as he added his sides third goal of the night in a 3-1 victory.

Republic of Ireland international Harry Arter meanwhile, has ended his decade-long association with Bournemouth, signing for Nottingham Forest.
Arter helped Fulham to promotion after his loan spell last season, and will be hoping to repeat the feat with his new side. The midfielder also helped secure promotion with Bournemouth in his time with the club.
Finally, Tyrone midfielder Colm Cavanagh has announced his retirement from inter-county football.
The 33-year-old was the last link with Tyrone's All-Ireland winning side of 2008. He won back-to-back All Stars in 2017 and 2018, representing his county for 13 years.
