Currently, the Championship season is on pause with the west Yorkshiremen sat top of the table with a healthy seven-point cushion over the playoff positions.
Although there are doubts on when – and if – football action can even return anytime soon, the current suspension is due until the end of April, but there are no certainties on that pulling through as of yet.
With no steady income as a result of the aforementioned issues, the club have taken measures to lessen the effect on their finances. Thus it appears as if the players and staff will put their income on hold for the time being.
An important move to make as Hay says.
