- Kevin Blackwell and Ronnie Jepson in charge on Saturday
- Manager also stayed away from midweek Carabao Cup game
Neil Warnock has tested positive for coronavirus and will miss Middlesbrough’s Championship game at home to Bournemouth on Saturday.
Boro’s manager was also absent from the home Carabao Cup defeat by Barnsley on Tuesday after feeling mildly unwell. A positive test subsequently confirmed the 71-year-old had Covid-19 and he is working on transfers and game plans from home. Kevin Blackwell and Ronnie Jepson will again take temporary charge this weekend.
