League One clubs will soon make a decision on how the campaign will be concluded.

A vote is being held to determine whether the season will continue or be halted, with just the play-offs to be held.

There have been other suggestions put forward for the ballot, which is being organised by the EFL on Tuesday.

But with the situation having dragged on, Kenny Jackett’s preference is to keep things as simple as possible.

The Blues boss said: “We stopped for good reason in mid-March and have remained that way for three months now.

"There are other possibilities mentioned, but that makes it very difficult to work out and complicates things."

“The season halted and you either have to take it as it was then or restart and finish things off – everything else is a shade of grey.

“There are other possibilities mentioned, but that makes it very difficult to work out and complicates things.

“I’m very much in the ‘black and white’ campaign of taking our position when things stopped or playing our remaining fixtures and determining the issues that way.

“That aside, we have a wonderful football system with some smashing clubs and the important thing is we have them all intact when next season starts.”

Football fans who have been starved of action will soon have top-flight action on the television to sate their cravings.

Jackett said: “It’s exciting news for everyone in the industry and will be great for us to get back when we can.

“The Premier League and Championship have return dates now and we can also see what other countries have to done to keep people safe.”
