BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche will miss his side’s FA Cup tie against Huddersfield on Saturday after testing positive for Covid-19.

Long-serving assistant manager Ian Woan will take charge of the team against the Terriers at Turf Moor.

Coach Steve Stone has also tested positive for the virus.

A club statement read: “Burnley Football Club can confirm manager Sean Dyche will miss this weekend’s FA Cup third-round tie at home to Huddersfield, after testing positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday.

“Sean will now follow the mandatory self-isolation protocols.”

It will be the first time in over nine years Dyche has not been in the dugout for a Burnley game.

The Clarets have won only one Premier League game this season and find themselves in the bottom three.

Dyche's men will be aiming for their fourth win in all competitions, having beaten Newcastle and Rochdale in the Carabao Cup.

Burnley reached the fifth round of the FA Cup last season but were knocked out by Bournemouth after a 2-0 home defeat.
