Howe to miss first Newcastle match after positive Covid-19 test


However, he will absent from the stadium this weekend, and assistant managers Jason Tindall and Graeme Jones will take charge instead.

“I’m very disappointed that I won’t be there with you all at St. James’ Park tomorrow, but it is incredibly important that I follow the guidelines and self-isolate,” Howe said.

“I’d like to reassure everyone that I feel fine, and while this is unwelcome news for me, I know it hasn’t derailed our preparations for what is an important game.

“I have been, and will be, in constant communication with my coaching team and the players, both tomorrow and during the week, and I know they will be giving everything on and off the pitch.”

Newcastle are currently 19th in the table, and are yet to win a Premier League match this season. Only Norwich have conceded more goals than them so far.
