Leeds United: Phil Hay reveals EFL plans to finish Championship season - Leeds United

Phil Hay has outlined how the EFL plans to resume the Championship season during the pandemic, via The Athletic

Taking part in a fan Q&A with his colleague Matt Slater, the sports writer revealed 66k tests for COVID-19 will be required to finish the campaign at a cost of more than £20k to all the clubs involved in the competition.

However, he added that the Championship wants to play on, and, in the event football cannot restart, ‘sporting merit’ will be used to work out the rankings in the leagues. Hay also noted it is unlikely crowds will be able to return to Elland Road until 2021.

At present, Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites are in pole position to earn Premier League promotion, with a healthy seven-point-lead over Fulham and the chasing pack.

Understandably, loads of Peacocks fans discussed the journalist’s revelation, with one supporter admitting the uncertainty is “doing my head in Phil.”
