Rather different tonight to how it would have been

The winning run continues!

Meantime Leeds United simulated another game on FIFA20 tonight - against Fulham obviously - and the winning run continued with a 2-0 triumph for the Whites. Pablo Hernandez and Jack Harrison got the goals this time - four days on from the 3-1 success at Cardiff City. It's just a shame the Whites are currently unable to replicate such progress in real life but nevertheless the EFL's statement this evening is certainly a positive one.

EFL chairman Rick Parry - asked how realistic it was to complete the remaining games

"We believe it's realistic. In fact we believe it's essential because we want to finish competitively, we want the right decisions to be taken on the pitch quite frankly we believe it's more important to finish this season than to talk about next season. We discussed all of the aspects of the virus and potential outcomes and permutations and re-affirmed our commitment to finishing the season on the pitch. We want it to be competitive and we want promotion and relegation decided properly. We look forward to further dialogue with the Premier League and the FA tomorrow to make sure we are in step with our partner governing bodies."

Full story with EFL looking to complete the remainder of the campaign

The EFL say their primary objective, in order to protect competition integrity, is to deliver a successful conclusion to the 2019/20 season, subject to the over-riding priority around health and well-being. 

Schools closed from Friday. 

"Once training commences again, I don’t think anyone will train as hard as us."
