With English professional football currently suspended, there has been a lot of discussion and speculation regarding each division’s various permutations.
With Leeds United flying high in the Championship and on the verge of promotion to the Premier League, everyone connected to the Elland Road club is monitoring proceedings especially closely.
As things stand, the Premier League and English Football League are set to resume on 3 April, but this is subject to medical advice and conditions at the time.
As reported by The Telegraph, an April resumption appears “optimistic in the extreme”, given the disease is not forecast to peak until May or June.
Leeds have endured 16 years out of the Premier League and never have they appeared as close to returning as this season, sitting top of the table, seven points clear of third.
Former Whites player Andy Couzens has taken to Twitter claiming that, once 35 league games have been played, the table stands were the season to be voided.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds will hold a senior management meeting on Monday to discuss how they will operate as a business during the hiatus.
