The long process to determine how the EFL season will conclude is going to continue until at least June 8.

It had been hoped members, including Oxford United, would be able to vote after the weekend to finally gain clarity about what happens next.

Today marks 11 weeks since the season was suspended due to coronavirus.

But while the Premier League announced yesterday their matches will resume on June 17, the EFL are facing more delays.

The organisation's board met on Wednesday to weigh up the feedback given by clubs to their draft proposal on how the campaign can be ended.

Two options were put forward - play the remaining fixtures (favoured by the Championship), or use a formula to calculate promotion, relegation and play-off places.

It is preferred by League Two and while League One is undecided, the further delay makes it more likely it will be the latter option, which would see United finish fourth and go into a play-off.

Following the board meeting, they have called a meeting of clubs on Monday, June 8 to consider the regulation change.

EFL rules allow clubs to propose amendments in such circumstances and they have been given until 2pm on Tuesday, June 2 to come forward.

The statement read: "A decision on whether or not to curtail the season is a matter to be considered by clubs in any affected division, but only once a framework for resolving open issues in such circumstances has been agreed by all members across all divisions through a regulation change."

There is no mention in the statement of whether a vote for each division will be held on the same day.

But even if a final decision is made on June 8, the time it would take to put a testing protocol in place and then get the players up to match fitness makes it likely United would not return t action until July.
