Scott Parker will miss Fulham’s Boxing Day clash with Southampton after a member of his household tested positive for coronavirus.

The Fulham manager has been self-isolating at home having returned a negative result himself and could be back in the dugout for next Wednesday’s trip to Tottenham. First team coach Matt Wells and assistant manager Stuart Gray will take charge at Craven Cottage on Saturday as the Whites look to continue their impressive recent run of form against the Saints.
