OXFORD United have reiterated their position is to play the remaining games in Sky Bet League One if possible.

The EFL announced yesterday a draft framework to conclude a season which was suspended ten weeks ago due to coronavirus.

It gave clubs two options - play on, or scrap the outstanding games and use a points per game calculation to determine promotion, relegation and the play-offs.

The latter route would see the U's finish fourth and be involved in a semi-final against Portsmouth, which is thought to be the most likely outcome.

But when it comes to a vote, managing director Niall McWilliams made their stance clear.

He told the club's website: “We have said all along that we think the fairest way to decide the league is by playing matches, always with the proviso that it is done with the health and safety of our players and staff as the priority.

"The EFL has asked clubs to give their views and ours will categorically be ‘let’s play’."

He added: “We have done things with integrity and the utmost respect to all the clubs we have faced and all we hope is for a chance to win promotion the right way to cap off all the hard work.”

Head coach Karl Robinson said: “There has been so much talk about how to end the season and it feels like we are almost there now.

"We have faith in the process, we trust that common sense will win through and all we want is the chance for the players to put on those yellow shirts again and try to win promotion on the pitch.”
