Lambert's Covid-19 Test Negative
Wednesday, 28th Oct 2020 12:05
Town boss Paul Lambert’s Covid-19 test has come back negative, the club has confirmed.
Lambert took the test yesterday having reported mild symptoms and missed last night’s game against Gillingham as a precaution.
The Blues manager watched his side’s 1-0 victory on iFollow and received news of his negative test just after the final whistle.
Over the weekend, first-team coach Matt Gill tested positive having felt symptoms on Saturday - missing the Lincoln match as a consequence - and is now self-isolating for the required 10 days.
Lambert will continued to be monitored ahead of Saturday’s home match against Crewe Alexandra but hopes to be back in the dugout.
“While obviously encouraging that the manager has tested negative, we still have to show a degree of caution,” 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.”

Season's Beatings by Moggasknockdown
It is a bitterly disheartening experience supporting Ipswich. At every sliding doors moment in our recent history we have taken the wrong path, at every opportunity for schadenfreude an ex-player will decisively score, or create or generally remind us all that they are happier now, away from the depressing, soul-destroying experience that was their Ipswich career.
Cycle of Hurt by Steve_M
It's hard not to see a club that has got nearly every big decision wrong and come out on the wrong side of almost every promotion or relegation fight over 19 years as being in anything other than terminal decline. The very obvious exception to that pattern of failure was the appointment of Mick McCarthy and his first few years here.
Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
