"It is a great tragedy that has happened. I have never heard anything like this in my entire life. It is a great shame," said manager Sam Allardyce on Tuesday.
"Our sympathies go out to his family and we will doing our utmost in terms of respect for him tomorrow.
"If it helps the family in some way, we will get them a win and three valuable points."
