Two more Watford players are in self-isolation after family members tested positive for the coronavirus, manager Nigel Pearson said on Friday.

The unnamed pair join Watford defender Adrian Mariappa and two staff who went into isolation this week after they tested positive in the English Premier League's first round of testing.

Pearson said the team's two new cases came from people they had contact with testing positive for COVID-19, even though the players' own tests were negative.
