THE EFL has called for calm heads as they look to come up with a plan to deal with the complications caused by coronavirus.

On Friday the board took a decision to suspend competition until at least April 3, a period which included three Oxford United fixtures.

There is uncertainty about what will happen after that, but the EFL has stressed no decisions have been taken ahead of a board meeting this week.

In a statement they said: "The League also feels it inappropriate to respond to the many hypothetical solutions being suggested whilst the many unknowns remain.

"Given the fast-paced environment and parameters we are currently working within, it is simply not practical to give a running commentary on what may happen.

"In the immediate short term we will continue with our contingency planning to deal with the implications the outbreak of Covid-19 has presented the EFL and its clubs, in addition to liaising with the Government, health authorities and football partners."

EFL Chair, Rick Parry, said: “These are indeed challenging times for the League, its clubs and the game as a whole.

"However, now is the time for cool heads and calm reflection, rather than speculation as we look to steer our competitions and clubs through this period of uncertainty.”
