There are still plans for play-offs to take place as normal, with two-legged semi-finals and a final.

League One will meet again next week after they failed to reach an agreement on how to end the season, currently suspended due to the COVID-19 crisis.

With them and the National League below League Two undecided on how to end the campaign it makes promotion and relegation tricky.

League Two clubs want to use weighted points-per-game as their method to decide the final standings which takes into account home and away matches.

It removes any bias for those clubs that have played at home more than away.

This method would see Swindon crowned champions with Crewe and Plymouth both being promoted.

The play-off spots would be occupied by Exeter City, Cheltenham Town, Colchester United and Northampton Town.

Meanwhile, Harry Kane is happy to start training again ahead of the Premier League returning.

“Personally, I’m happy to start training in small groups if we are allowed and try to get back to some normality as soon as possible,” he said.

“Every player’s different and everyone has their own point of view.

“We want to see how the Premier League give us a plan, and what that looks like and we’ll go from there.

“About a week ago we started going to the training ground, we were allowed to have one-on-one training with one member of staff on one pitch, self-distancing from everyone.

“We had tests on Monday – all the players and staff had tests – and everyone came back negative, which was great.

“The clubs are talking to the Premier League and trying to find a way of next week or the next couple of weeks of training in small groups of four or five. Hopefully to be tested regularly as well.

“We are taking it day-by-day, week-by-week and we are just trying to go with the flow.”
