He said: “We have no desire for voiding the season, points per game scenarios or letting a computer decide our footballing fate.

“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.”

Fleetwood chairman Andy Pilley said: “We are backing the completion of League One fixtures.

“Sporting integrity is of paramount importance, we cannot accept points per game or any other conclusion without giving it our best shot in a safe environment.

“Germany, Premier League, Championship and many more are completing and so should we.”
