League Two Clubs Keen to End the Season on the Pitch - But Questions Remain

Clubs in Sky Bet League Two remain committed to finishing the currently suspended 2019/20 campaign, however, huge question marks remain over whether they will be able to achieve it.
With the season on hold due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic club officials spoke in a video conference on Tuesday afternoon and have resolved to try to see out the campaign, even if that means ending the season behind closed doors.

As the nation remains on lock-down with many only able to leave their homes for essential outings, there remain several major challenges which could ultimately see the season brought to an end without a ball being kicked.

One of the biggest issues is the huge number of players whose contracts are due to expire on Thursday, 30th June, with some clubs expecting to see the majority of their squads either depart of be offered fresh terms.

And whilst the EFL and PFA continue their tug-of-war over the ins and outs of any potential extension agreement many clubs remain on the brink of disaster as the Covid-19 related fall in income continues to bite.

If the season does ultimately resume fans may see their beloved teams having to field massively under-strength sides and there have even been some suggestion that League Two clubs are prepared to ask the EFL to end the season prematurely.

According to a report first published by BBC Sport, club officials are yet to ask for the season to end but, with so many sides already experiencing financial difficulties, there is no guarantee their stance won't change unless there is even greater clarity over when the campaign will ultimately resume.
