Three positive Covid tests from 1,030 in Championship

But should the season be cancelled, the points-per-game formula will apply.

There have been disagreements between the League One clubs over how to continue the campaign and, any decision to curtail the season, will only take place if the clubs vote in favour of doing so.

The games will start in the same week as the Premier League, as the country's second tier makes steps towards completing their season.

"At the same time as advising on its proposed approach last week, the Board had asked Clubs to give it appropriate consideration and provide any feedback".

"Following the latest round of Covid-19 testing, the EFL can confirm that 1,058 players and club staff from the 24 Championship clubs were tested over the course of Thursday 28 May and Friday 29 May, with 10 individuals testing positive from eight clubs", a statement said.

The EFL board "unanimously" agreed upon a framework at a meeting on Wednesday, but now needs clubs to approve it.

Communications were submitted from Clubs across all divisions and those proposals, some of which have been made available publicly, suggested how the framework in the event the season is ended prematurely could alternatively work.


Following that clubs will receive a notice to consider the original proposal and any other qualifying regulation change proposal.

Under the EFL's proposal, Stevenage are set to be relegated from League Two.

"I think the Championship will go ahead", Neville told The Football Show on Sky Sports.

The Linnets are waiting to hear whether or not they will be promoted from National League South - they are now second, two points behind York with two games in hand.

"I think we are all resigned to the fact there will be a quick turn around this season into the next one", he said. We all know how important it is to the likes of Leeds and West Brom, who are at the top of that league. At present Clubs in League One are still undecided.

The National League Board have said they will wait for a decision from the EFL before they decide how to settle the sporting issues, after bringing their season to a halt.
