LEAGUES One and Two could be abandoned as early as next week, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph.

It is claimed a vote will be held between clubs in the bottom two tiers to finish the season early after all but three have voiced concerns about resuming competitive football in the short-term.

EFL chairman Rick Parry urged the government to make a swift decision yesterday, arguing that the campaign had to be completed by July 31 because of player contract issues.

There is still some debate as to whether play-offs would be staged later in the summer – but it now looks likely that promotion and relegation will go ahead, meaning Wanderers, who are currently 21 points from safety with 10 games to play, will be competing in League Two from 2020/21.

The report claims any motion to end the season would require the backing of 75 per cent of the voting clubs.

Rochdale CEO David Bottomley believes it is unlikely that the season will be completed.

He told BBC Radio Manchester: “Whether you null and void it, whether you award it on a points-per-game basis or whether you just reset for next year...I think the clubs would have to vote on that.

“We are very much behind the EFL at this football club, we’ve got great solidarity with clubs in League One and we would go with the majority.

“From a football club point of view, and we’ve had a recent board meeting, we can’t see it ending.

“That July 31 day is paramount because of players that are out of contract.”
