The Athletic’s Phil Hay has provided a fresh claim on the latest situation. He claims that it’s very much “up in the air” with many teams believing it won’t be possible to resume the current campaign.
He also sheds light into the question marks surrounding promotion and suggests that all sensible points-per-game standings have the west Yorkshiremen going up via one of the two automatic spots.
up in the air. Clubs in the Championship (like Leeds) want to resume. Others don’t think it will be possible. Any sensible PPG metric has Leeds finishing top two so their back is covered in that sense.

But only time will tell on the Championship’s immediate future.
