Sheffield Wednesday, Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town and Hull City are all strongly against the restart of the Sky Bet Championship season.
Plans are being put in place for the Championship season to resume in the coming month, with a view of concluding by the end of summer.
The BBC report how clubs have been told to return to training towards the end of May, with a view of resuming playing around June 13th.
That’s music to the ears of Leeds United and West Brom, who are pushing for promotion back to the Premier League, but their rivals in the Championship are against a restart.
A report from The Telegraph notes how there’s opposition from Sheffield Wednesday, Cardiff, Huddersfield and Hull to restarting the season at all.
In terms of what’s left to play for with that quartet, Wednesday are drifting towards a mid-table finish and their remaining nine games hold little meaning.
However, Cardiff still have an outside shot of the play-offs, whilst Huddersfield and Hull are battling relegation.
Hull, in particular, looked to be in serious trouble, with Grant McCann’s side falling from play-off contention to the bottom four since the turn of the year.
QUIZ: Do you know the colour of these 40 EFL clubs’ home shirts?
Getting 24 teams agreeing on the season’s resume was never going to be straightforward and you can see why Wednesday don’t want to take any risks resuming.
Cardiff’s situation is different given their geographical position, but Huddersfield and Hull appear to be looking to duck an uncertain relegation battle.
They are in the thick of the fight at the bottom of the table and resuming puts their Championship status at risk.
