National League/EFL

Taken from the BBC Football sport page regarding the current circumstances.

As the EFL went through this season with 71 teams following Bury's expulsion last August, at least one side has to be promoted, with a second going up through the play-offs as it presently stands. That would mean League Two's bottom club, currently Stevenage, going down.

However, speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live on Saturday, EFL chairman Rick Parry said the idea the current season would finish in July and the next one start as planned in August was "wishful thinking".

It means the National League could yet end up starting their 2020-21 campaign before EFL clubs have finished this season, given the commitment within the professional game to complete the season at some point.

As Barrow are currently four points clear of Harrogate at the top of the table, with nine games remaining, one possible option would be to scrap the play-offs completely, promote the Cumbrians as "champions" and allow Stevenage to remain in League Two.
