‘Disgraceful’, ‘Liquidation next year’ – Many Sunderland fans concerned as EFL plans emerge

Published

on

The EFL is reportedly set to end League One and League Two next week and it seems increasingly likely that Sunderland will not be promoted to the Championship this season, which has drawn a frustrated response from fans of the North East club. 

The Black Cats are seventh in League One as things stand – outside the top six on goal difference and just three points back from the automatic promotion places.

Phil Parkinson’s side will likely feel confident of their chances of promotion should the 2019/20 campaign resume but it seems they may not get that chance.

According to The Athletic, the EFL is set to tell League One and League Two clubs that there is no possibility of playing more matches this season.

It is understood that clubs will then be asked to vote on potential proposals for completing the campaign – with a weighted points-per-game system the current favourite.

That proposal would mean Coventry City, Rotherham United and Oxford United are promoted, while the Black Cats remain in League One.
