Last updated : 15 May 2020 By Millersmad

The clubs met today via video link and no decision has been made, and another meeting will be held on Monday.

The general consensus is that the majority of clubs feel that the season should be ended due to the financial constraints now places on the lower league clubs.

But a statement put out by clubs mainly in the play-offs, by Peterborough United Chairman Darragh MacAnthony, speaking on behalf of Peterborough United, Oxford United, Sunderland, Fleetwood, Portsmouth and Ipswich Town.

"We have no desire for voiding the season, points-per-game scenarios or letting a computer decide our footballing fate".

MacAnthony continued;  "For our fans/staff and for the integrity of our sport, we are all looking forward to completing our pending fixtures/season under guidance from the EFL at a time it is deemed safe to do so."
