Brighton boss Graham Potter misses Leicester’s clash after positive Covid test

Brighton boss Graham Potter Test positive for coronavirus and miss his side Premier League Game in Leicester

Potter’s assistant, Billy Reed, will attend ALBION’s pre-match press conference on Friday and will be in charge of the team at King Power Stadium on Sunday.

The 58-year-old woman has been a manager at Hamilton for eight years before partnering with Potter in Östersund, Sweden in 2013, and has been working with him ever since.

“Graham had a rough night last night and didn’t get training because he tested positive this morning,” Reed said.

“I still don’t know how it works. I haven’t decided yet, but I’m sure I’ll connect with him at home.

“We had never done that in Swansea, but we had to do it twice in Östersund. I think we won one and lost one.

“I Scotland It’s been eight years, so I know what to expect. This is the Premier League and a big step, but I’m fine about it. I’ve been working with Graham for nine and a half years, so nothing changes, so I try to keep things normal.

“The players are in a good place. I’m looking forward to Sunday.”

Brighton, who came from behind to draw with Chelsea in the middle of the week, will face Leicester, who suffered a devastating home loss to Tottenham on Wednesday.

Stephen Belfwin scored two goals when injured as Fox led 2-1 and lost 3-2.

“We were actually in the match, so we saw it,” Reed said. “They seemed to win the match, but apparently lost in the last 30 seconds, so I think they’ll hurt, and I think they’re even more ready for us.

“They have lost a few players, but it’s dangerous. The Brendan Rodgers team is always well organized and Leicester is a top 8 or top 6 team, so we need to do our best again.

“I don’t really know who is available to them, but everyone has a strong team.

“I know Brendan did an incredible job at Celtic in Scotland and won everything. He has made a big impression since he came to Leicester. We played against top coaches. No doubt about that. “
