Negative test for boss but he will continue to be monitored ahead of weekend clash with Crewe

Paul Lambert is hoping to be back in the Town dug-out for Saturday’s game against Crewe after his test for Covid-19 came back negative.

Blues’ boss reported mild symptoms yesterday morning and stayed at home as a precautionary measure.

Paul watched the win over Gillingham on the Club’s iFollow service before receiving the news after the final whistle that his test had come back all-clear.

Town first-team coach Matt Gill has tested positive for Covid after showing symptoms on Saturday morning before the Lincoln game.

He immediately returned home and having received the result of his test on Sunday, will now be in self-isolation for at least 10 days.

“While obviously encouraging that the manager has tested negative, we still have to show a degree of caution,” Town physio, Matt Byard, told the Club website.

“We will monitor the symptoms over the next couple of days. If they start to clear up then I’d expect the manager to be back at the training ground on Friday morning. If the symptoms remain or increase, then we will have to do another test.”
