Championship games could restart before the Premier League.

The EFL held a board meeting on Wednesday in which they discussed pressing ahead in the second tier and are also determined to introduce a wage cap.

But League One and Two are likely to be finished with tables decided on a points-per-game basis - although the play-offs are set to remain.

However, the Championship is now on course to restart with games from June 6 - which is well ahead of the Premier League who are hoping to get going again on June 12.

The EFL will take part in talks with the Government, Premier League and Professional Footballers’ Association on Thursday to try and get the green light.

It does mean that the season will play out, will give Leeds and West Brom the chance to get promoted while the play-offs and relegation will remain.

The other significant issue being discussed in the Championship which was discussed between the clubs in their meeting on Wednesday afternoon was a wage cap.
