English League Two clubs have agreed to bring an end to the regular season following discussions with league bosses, it was reported on Friday.

English League Two clubs have agreed to bring an end to the regular season following discussions with league bosses, it was reported on Friday.

The BBC said the final table in the fourth tier of English football was set to be decided using a points-per-game method, but issues of promotion and relegation had yet to be finalised.

There are still plans for the play-offs to take place as usual.

Crewe Alexandra were top of League Two when the season was halted, with Swindon Town and Plymouth in the other two automatic promotion places.

Stevenage were bottom and occupied the sole relegation slot.

Teams in League One failed to come to a definitive agreement.

Six third-tier clubs said on Thursday that they were opposed to ending the season now on a points-per-game basis.


Peterborough owner Darragh MacAnthony tweeted on Thursday: “We as a collective are United in our goal to finish this season.”

Meanwhile, the Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho says he is “desperate” for the return of Premier League action despite mounting concerns about the English top-flight’s restart plans.

Several stars including Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Danny Rose have gone public with fears about resuming the season during the coronavirus crisis.

Some top-flight bosses are also understood to have expressed concerns about the plan to play from mid-June when they spoke during a League Managers Association meeting on Wednesday.

But Mourinho said he would relish the chance to get back to work despite the challenges and risks posed by the pandemic.

“I have not asked for any delay,” Mourinho said in a statement on Thursday.
