OXFORD United are hoping to finally discover their voting options tomorrow after the EFL’s board met.

While the club have not yet received any official details, it is believed they will be given two options on how to conclude the Sky Bet League One season.

Either the remaining games are played, or a points per game (PPG) formula will be applied to determine the final standings.

The latter option is thought most viable, given the time constraints of wrapping the season up by the end of July.

League Two have already set a precedent by opting the PPG approach.

It would see Coventry City and Rotherham United promoted, with the U’s in the play-offs.

If an unweighted PPG method was used – which was what the EFL outlined last Friday – it would set Karl Robinson’s men up against Portsmouth, while Wycombe Wanderers faced Fleetwood Town.

Southend United, Bolton Wanderers and Tranmere Rovers would be relegated.

It is also believed there will not be another conference call among the clubs.

After experiencing deadlock for so long, the process now looks like being decided by a vote only, with a deadline thought to be early next week.

Any hope of a consensus emerging in the wake of last Friday’s call is long gone.

Instead, the period since has only appeared to have been used by clubs to entrench their own, mostly self-serving, positions.

Jim Rodwell, chief executive at Sunderland, whose only hope of promotion is to play on, has hit out at others who wanted to stop.

He said: “Fulfilling our remaining fixtures will come at considerable cost, but it sets a deeply concerning precedent for professional football clubs to decide against completing competitions they have entered because they don’t feel like doing so.”

Unsurprisingly given it would relegate his side, Tranmere chairman Mark Palios is against the idea of using any form of PPG.

He said: “If the decision is made that we will not play the season out then I think it’s quite clear that the season should be voided, rather than deciding on what is a mid-season change of rules and a fairly arbitrary decision as regards how we deal with promotion and relegation.”

In a week of statements elsewhere, United have kept their counsel but have been consistent they want to continue, providing the conditions are suitable.

If the deadline for the vote is after the weekend, clubs have a decision to make over whether they restart training.

The latest guidance from the EFL says clubs cannot hold formal sessions until Monday.

But it would involve bringing players out of furlough, which they may be reluctant to do until there is a firm idea about when potential matches could be held.
