The meeting where English Football League clubs will discuss options if the season is cut short has been delayed by 24 hours.

Members, including Oxford United, were due to meet on Monday, but it has now been rescheduled until Tuesday.

The latest delay to a process which has dragged on was prompted by the need for a board meeting today.

It reviewed the proposed amendments put forward by clubs before yesterday's deadline.

EFL rules state five days are needed where regulation changes are put forward.

A statement said: "This now brings an end to a comprehensive consultation phase and clubs have today received formal notice of the meeting which will now take place on Tuesday 9 June 2020."

The meeting is unlikely to be the last in the process and is instead intending to find an agreed method if clubs then vote to curtail the season.

As things stood the two options are to play the remaining games, which is expected in the Championship, or to scrap them and use a points per game formula to calculate promotion, relegation and the play-offs.

But Tranmere Rovers were among those to submit alternative options before the deadline.
