Getty ImagesThe regular season in League One and League Two, the respective third and fourth tiers of English soccer, is over after clubs voted by an overwhelming margin to cut the 2019/20 campaign short due to the coronavirus pandemic. Clubs opted to use a framework for ending the season put forward by organising body the English Football League (EFL), which meant the final table would be calculated using an unweighted points-per-game basis. The framework retained promotion, relegation and the traditional four-team play-offs. As a result, Coventry City and Rotherham United have been promoted to the second-tier Championship, while Wycombe Wanderers, Oxford United, Portsmouth and Fleetwood Town will contest the playoffs, with the dates for those matches to be fixed in due course. Tranmere Rovers – who had proposed an alternative framework to the one chosen by the clubs – have been relegated to League Two, along with Southend United and Bolton Wanderers. Swindon Town, Crewe Alexandra and Plymouth Argyle have been promoted to League One, while Cheltenham Town, Exeter, Colchester United and Northampton Town will contest the playoffs, with the first legs of the semi-finals taking place next week.
