Jason Tindall speaking to Sky Sports about dealing with the absence of Eddie Howe:
“You want your leader here with you, but there was nothing we could do.
“He’s still had a very big input.
“I’m still in the hotel too – but this ss where modern day tecbhnology has come in handy.
“It’s a but strange but we’ve just got in with it.
“Isolating with the virus in a hotel room is difficult.
“But he’s watched training every day from multiple angles.
“We then analyse and feed back to players.
“Ed has been a big part of that, he’s very hands on.
“We’ve spoken 5-6 times a day and prepare training in the evenings.
““There’s a big change in how Ed’s felt as week has progressed.
“He struggled physically Sun/Mon/Tue & wanted to sleep – but there’s now a difference in his voice.”
