It’s understood a meeting between League One clubs has failed to reach a definitive outcome on how to proceed, so the clubs will meet again next week.

League Two clubs will have their meeting this afternoon, it could turn out different with many sides struggling financially.

While a growing number of sides have grown reluctant to attempt to complete the campaign, a number of promotion-chasing teams – He released a statement on behalf of the Peterborough, Oxford, Sunderland, Fleetwood, Portsmouth and Ipswich –  want to see fixtures played and the season finished once it is safe to do so.

Both sides were able to put forward their perspectives during this morning’s conference call, with clubs now able to take stock and consider their position ahead of another meeting next week.

Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony has been noted to be concerned regarding the sponsorship/ticket repayments. Other clubs less so. It would roughly cost £350k-500k per club to continue.

The one thing that was revealed from the meeting was that BBC 5 Live’s Ian Dennis has claimed the coronavirus testing programme will be funded by the League.

He said: ‘In a draft document for a protocol to return to training, the EFL says the testing program will be funded by the League, which will provide all reasonable logistical support to ensure that the program runs effectively.

The level of testing remains subject to confirmation of Government advice and the testing process to be advised by the League is currently being finalised. Details will be confirmed in good time before testing is to commence. This protocol will require the consent of all stakeholders and the agreement of Clubs.
