'No danger’ - Sun journo issues verdict on which way Ch'ship clubs will vote in major EFL ballot

Leeds United are in “no danger” of seeing their Championship peers vote to end the season early, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon. 

The EFL released a statement on Thursday maintaining that it was still preferable for any remaining fixtures to be played as initially planned, as well as outlining their preference for deciding league standings on a points per game average in the event of the campaign being curtailed early.

Clubs will be asked to consider and then vote on the framework outlined by the statement, with the governing body also suggesting that the season will only be brought to an immediate end if a 51% majority of teams want that to be the case.

But Nixon is convinced that will not happen.

When asked on Twitter whether it would be a “close vote” on ending the season early, he said: “Championship, no danger.

“League One is where the action is.”

When asked to clarify his comments further, the reliable journalist added: “Championship want to finish. Always have”.

Nixon’s certainty is promising news for Leeds.

It’s been clear from very early on in this whole episode that it is the preference of the club to finish the season on the pitch, with Tyler Roberts going as far as to suggest that he and his teammates are “desperately” keen to get back into action as soon as possible.

In recent days, we have seen Hull City speak out in direct opposition to restarting the season, calling for the campaign to be voided instead.

This latest update from Nixon would seemingly suggest that their stance puts them very much in the minority, however, and should go a long way towards putting supporters’ minds at ease.
