Leeds United fans are praying that they are either able to see their side finish off the 2019/20 season or handed promotion to the Premier League.

Before the coronavirus-enforced suspension of football earlier this month, Leeds were in fine form, sitting top of the Championship, seven points clear of third and nine matches left to play.

Leeds have occupied a top-two spot almost all season and definitely deserve to win promotion to the Premier League after 16 years outside of it.

However there have been some ideas floated about that would see the 2019/20 campaign null and voided if football cannot reconvene due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It would be a disaster it that was to happen to the Whites, who have done so well to get to where they are with just nine matches to play.

And, according to an update by a BBC journalist, the FA are showing that they are not scared to end seasons right now.

Ollie Bayliss, who hosts the non-league show and is a journalist on BBC radio, has reported on his personal Twitter account that the FA have “advised Step 5 & 6 leagues that the 2019/20 season is over”.

It remains unclear whether that means all results will be voided or whether the current league positions will stand, with promotions and relegations accounted for.

Bayliss adds that the FA are expected to make that decision across the entirety of non-league football, meaning that it will have an impact on the EFL with teams gunning for promotion out of the National League and into League Two.

If the league was to end now with all results standing, Leeds would go up into the Premier League as champions.

But, is it really worth risking wanting the 2019/20 season to be ended, knowing that there is a possibility of all results being voided?

It would cause a huge panic among supporters if the FA end up applying this decision higher up the footballing pyramid with the 2019/20 EFL and Premier League campaigns being scrapped.
