Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo has tested positive for coronavirus, the club’s head coach Thomas Frank has confirmed.

The news comes as Brentford prepare to take on Fulham at Craven Cottage in the first Championship match since the enforced shutdown.

Frank does, however, welcome back Pontus Jansson to his defence, in what is the Swede’s first start since January, for a west London derby between two sides targetting promotion.

Mbuemo’s brief though is a watching one, and he appeared to be in good spirits as he took to Twitter to will his team-mates on.

The 20-year-old has enjoyed an impressive first season in English football following his arrival last August, with 14 goals in the league.
