League One and League Two clubs braced for season to be ended as EFL faces row over vote | Football | Sport

But the Mirror add that they have been told by one club that they are worried the season will be curtailed – although a club vote must first be taken.

“It will go to the clubs,” Parry said when asked who will decide who finishes the season.

“The board, technically, would have the power to make the decision, but it is wholly appropriate the decision went to the clubs.”

Yet that could open a league-wide row with clubs all expected to have different attitudes towards the rest of the seasons.

With some clubs wanting the season finished in order to ease costs – although all matches will be held behind closed doors – others will hope the season can be cancelled having endured a below-par 12 months.

Yet with no gate receipts due to the lack of crowds, the 48 clubs may simply find it too difficult to stage games with the money simply far lesser than the Premier League.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville, co-owner of League Two outfit Salford City, told The Football Show on Friday that the lack of finances will prove critical.

He explained: “I said a few weeks ago I think it’s extremely unlikely League One and League Two will play football.

“We know the Bundesliga and the measures they’re putting in place to allow football to happen. It’s going to cost a lot of money. And the same with the Premier League.
