A League One chairman hits out on the proposed plan to end season and repeats his threats of legal action should the EFL chooses to fold the campaign.

Peterborough‘s Darragh MacAnthony will launch legal action if his club’s chances of promotion are taken from them with one decision could be to null and void the 2019-20 season.

He has responded to reports on Friday that claimed clubs in Leagues One and Two will vote early next to week to determine whether to end or continue, despite all but three League One sides ready to vote in favour of ending.

The three promoted teams with an points per game weighted home and away a possibility, they would be Coventry, Rotherham and Oxford. See how it would look for every league in professional English football HERE.

Peterborough would climb up to 5th from 6th based on the formula used by the English rugby union – deemed the fairest points-per-game method, there would be no playoffs however.

MacAnthony expressed how his Posh side deserve it more than anyone else in the division.

He tweeted: “Three points from second place, the best goal difference in the division, nine games left, five at home with one of the best home records in the division and seven games against teams in the bottom 11, and these owners think we would take these alleged decisions about to happen/get voted on according to the press lying down?

“Not a chance. Prepare for a legal battle of epic proportions and that won’t just be from our club, trust me on that.”

Fans then quickly replied as the chairman hits out on plan to end season…
