Queens Park Rangers midfielder Marc Pugh has said that the club missing out on a promotion push because of the league shutdown would be devastating.
The football season has been suspended until April 30 at the earliest and it is not yet known how the EFL will look to proceed once the shutdown is over.
One potential concern has been the financial impact on clubs, while others could miss out on promotion if the league is made void.
Speaking on the Open All R’s podcast, Pugh said he hoped the club’s promotion push would not be impacted by the shutdown.
“To be honest I don’t have an opinion on it,” he said.
“Me personally, I’m going to be ready whenever it does start back up. It’d be amazing if we could finish the season but at the end of the day we’ve just got to do what we’re told.
“We’re in a great position six points off the play-offs so it’d be devastating if we couldn’t give it that one final push.”
QPR are currently 13th in the Championship table, six points adrift of the playoffs.
QPR are unbeaten in their last six league matches and the run has put them in with an outside chance of promotion.
With nine matches to play another good run could see them gaining ground on the teams above them, but it will depend on the leagues decision.
As it stands, the current situation is difficult to predict and therefore it could be a nervous wait for the R’s.
