BARRY Fry believes the vote for League One clubs to decide how to finish the season will not take place until after an EFL board meeting on Wednesday.

The director of football at Peterborough United says there is no chance the campaign will be declared null and void, while there will be promotions and relegations from the third tier.

But League One clubs have so far failed to agree on the best course of action to conclude a campaign suspended since March due to coronavirus, unlike the other two EFL divisions.

Peterborough, like Oxford United, want to play on if it is safe, but if clubs vote to curtail the campaign and just have play-offs it would have a big impact on Darren Ferguson's side.

Posh would drop out of the top six if a straight points per game formula was used, while a weighted formula would put them in the play-offs.

Fry told the Peterborough Telegraph: "The League One season will not be declared null and void.

“Promotions will be granted. There will be play-offs, but as yet the League One clubs can’t agree on the way forward.

“The EFL board are meeting on Wednesday. They will then present the possible scenarios to the clubs and we will then vote on them later in the week, probably on Friday.

“My fear is the EFL deciding League One should follow what League Two have done, but that would be wrong as Rick Parry (EFL chairman) has said the Championship, League One and League Two clubs can make their own decisions.

“I know the EFL want to promote Coventry and Rotherham (the current top two) and then have play-offs.

"I can just about see why Coventry would be allowed to go up, but promoting Rotherham would be wrong.

“They are only two points ahead of two teams and three points ahead of four other teams. Ourselves and Oxford have a better goal difference.

"Rotherham might go on and finish second if we played the season out, but equally they might finish eighth.

“Different play-off proposals have been made as well. Our chairman has suggested eight teams could be involved, but we will just have to wait and see what happens.

“Obviously a weighted points per game suits us if we can’t play on. It’s also a lot fairer than a straight points-per-game formula.

“One thing for sure is we won’t vote to try and scrap relegation like League Two clubs have.

"There is no sporting merit in that at all.”
