According to The Evening Standard, Fulham manager Scott Parker is set to return to the dugout for the clash against Tottenham on Wednesday after a second negative test for coronavirus.

Fulham are the next visitors to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for what is a crucial London derby with three important points at stake for both sides.

Even though the Cottagers are sitting in the drop zone, they are unbeaten in their last four games and Jose Mourinho’s men can expect a tough test on Wednesday.

The away side will be boosted by the return of Parker, who could not take charge of Fulham’s clash against Southampton on Boxing Day after he was forced to isolate due to a member of his household testing positive for COVID-19.

Assistant manager Stuart Gray and first-team coach Matt Wells took the reigns in their 0-0 draw on the south coast.

Parker reportedly already tested negative ahead of the clash against the Saints and having now returned a second negative test, is expected to be given the green light to take charge on Wednesday.

Parker will certainly have something to prove on his return to Spurs, having started his coaching career with the Lilywhites. Given Fulham’s recent run of form, Mourinho’s men cannot afford to take them lightly on Wednesday.
