MOT View: EFL confirm news likely to be major promotion boost for Leeds

It is all looking good for Leeds United in their bid to win promotion back to the Premier League by playing all their remaining fixtures.

Leeds have always taken the stance that if they are going to return to the top-flight then they are going to want to do so on the pitch rather than via the points-per-game system.

Championship players are allowed to return to training on Monday in small groups of four or five after being tested for coronavirus over the last few days.

On Sunday, the EFL confirmed on their official website that only two people from one club had been tested positive, even though a huge 1014 tests on players and staff had taken place.

Those two people are now going to self-isolate for a week before they are tested again and we hope that they are both able to fully recover and not feel any of the symptoms that this disease can give people.

But the fact that only 0.2 per cent of tests came back positive is a very positive update in terms of getting the season back on track.

If the Championship is going to resume then it needs to resume when it is totally safe to do so.

Based on these numbers given by the EFL, does it not already seem as though it is safe for it to resume? If all players stick to social distancing guidelines then there is a chance that when the next lot of testing comes around there’ll be no one who tests positive.

Once that happens, it could just be a case of getting players up to speed and getting the logistics in place for Leeds to get what they want and to be able to finish off the season.

In other Leeds United news, Victor Orta has shared a rumour he’s heard about the transfer window.
