Rotherham United can confirm that first team manager Paul Warne will be absent from the dugout for the club’s upcoming fixtures against Watford and Bristol City having entered a period of self-isolation on Friday.
The Millers boss will oversee both Tuesday and Saturday’s fixtures from afar, with first team coach Matt Hamshaw also self-isolating for tomorrow’s hosting of the Hornets, leaving assistant manager Richie Barker and goalkeeping coach Andy Warrington to take charge on the sidelines in midweek.
The club can also confirm that our training base at Roundwood has today reopened to staff and players following the Covid outbreak and ahead of tomorrow night’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Watford at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
"We have been hit really, really hard this time. It has gone through the camp and we've had a significant number of people self-isolating, including myself now,” Warne confirmed.
"The lads’ first day back in will be today, as I do this interview on Monday.
"They won't have myself, Richie or Hammy there, but fortunately we've got Andy Warrington to oversee training.
"Richie will be able to take a session with the lads on Tuesday morning to take them through some work to prepare them as well as we can technically.
"I'll be watching from afar - although I'm not sure whether I'll be able to listen to Breck's commentary going through all of the emotions of it!”
