Chairmen agree season decision

League Two likely to complete Play-Off games

15 May 2020

League Two clubs have agreed unanimously to end the regular season, but to complete the Play-Offs to decide the fourth promotion place.

Should this agreement be ratified by the official EFL vote, Colchester United in sixth place would make it into the Play-Offs.

The fourth tier clubs met on Friday, and in principle agreed to ending the regular League Two season immediately.

It is expected that a formal vote will take place early next week, but it is now clear how the clubs see things progressing.

All twenty four clubs agreed to the final league positions being decided on a Points per Game basis, and the three top clubs, Swindon Town, Crewe Alexandra and Plymouth Argyle, gaining promotion to League One.

The clubs also thought that the Play-Offs should be completed with teams in fourth to seventh place in the division playing out the usual two-legged Semi-Final and Final scenario.

The points per game calculations would see fifth placed Cheltenham Town jump above Exeter City into fourth, meaning the U's facing Exeter over two legs in the Play-Off Semi-Final.

Until this matter is put through an official EFL vote next week, and agreed, no decision will be made on Play-Off dates.
