Fulham boss Scott Parker will not take charge of his team’s Boxing Day game with Southampton after someone in his household tested positive for Covid-19.
Parker, 40, tested negative but has been self-isolating this week.
Assistant manager Stuart Gray and first-team coach Matt Wells will take charge of the team on Saturday.
Provided he returns a further negative result, Parker will return to the dugout for Fulham’s trip to Tottenham Hotspur on 30 December.
Fulham, who Parker guided to promotion last season through the Championship play-offs, are third bottom after earning 10 points from their opening 14 matches.
