Leeds United will be hoping for the season to return as soon as it is safe to do so, so that they can finish what they started this campaign and finally get themselves back into the Premier League.
The wait away from the top flight has been long enough and now they are having to wait for an indefinite period before they can see if the Whites can finish the job.
Can you get full marks on this Leeds United quiz?
The hope will be, though, that this period allows the players to really focus the mind and get ready for the finish, with just nine games left in the league campaign.
In terms of preparation, too, it seems the Whites have been on top of things for a while, with Phil Hay revealing that Rob Price and his medical staff had been planning for the possibility of the current situation since January.
Here, then, we take a look at the best of what has been said about the Whites’ superb call to get ready earlier than most…
From inside the medical room: a piece with Leeds United’s head of medicine, Rob Price.
– planning for COVID-19 began in January
– managing fit and injured players
– twice-daily checks by club doctor
– the need for a ‘buffer period’ when football restartshttps://t.co/459nEHedWT

Its going to be interesting to see if we come back "stronger" with a couple of key players back to fitness. Of course this goes for other teams too. I hope the final 9 games don't turn into a lottery.

I only hope they don't have the mini pre-season as a clause for starting up. Finishing must be number one on the list, and if they only get a week of hitting the trainingground before matches start, I hope they adhere to this and get it done (if it is possible and safe healtwise)
