Watch: Leigh Pomlett Reacts to EFL's Coronavirus Suspension

Following the news that the spreading Coronavirus spread has led to professional football in England and Scotland being suspended, Walsall chairman Leigh Pomlett has spoken to club journalists and discussed what it means for Walsall Football Club.
The EFL, Premier League, FA and SPFL have confirmed that professional football in their respective regions will not go ahead of the foreseeable future with English teams not expected to return to action until at least Saturday, 4th April.

Walsall, who have been enjoying a strong spell of form - Darrell Clarke's side going five games unbeaten - have ten Sky Bet League Two games remaining between now and the end of the season and face a busy final few weeks of the campaign if and when action resumes.

Chairman Pomlett, speaking via the club's official YouTube channel, answered a variety of questions, and you can see his interview below.
