Falkirk have confirmed that co-manager Lee Miller has entered into isolation for 14 days after a member of his family tested positive for Covid-19.
The Bairns announced the news in a statement on their club website ahead of tomorrow’s League One clash with East Fife at the Falkirk Stadium.
Miller was due to take part in Falkirk’s weekly media call yesterday, looking ahead to tomorrow’s game, but was replaced by David McCracken as he started his stint in isolation.
With Miller also registered as a player for the Bairns, it means he’ll be unavailable for games against East Fife, Partick and Dumbarton.
“Falkirk Football Club can confirm that co-manager Lee Miller is now in a period of 14 days isolation following a positive COVID-19 test in his family,” the Bairns’ statement said.
“We would like to stress that this is a purely precautionary measure and that the Club has followed all SPFL and Scottish Government COVID-19 guidelines and protocols.
“The Club would like to wish both Lee and his family all the best at this time.”
The Bairns suffered a frustrating draw last weekend against Forfar after keeper Robbie Mutch was sent off for a petulant push on Jordan Allan, conceding a penalty in the process to allow Forfar to equalise.
Despite Miller’s absence, McCracken will be confident of guiding the side to a win against the Fifers on his own with plenty of fire power at his disposal already,
