Ebbsfleet United are hoping information of a choice on their future comes quickly.
The Nationwide League have cancelled all remaining video games however the choice over which groups to advertise or relegate, if any, stays an unanswered query. It’s anticipated to be resolved subsequent week.
Director of soccer Steve Lovell admits the present wait is doing them no favours.
Lovell stated: “We now have simply received to attend for the league to decide on the place we’re going, we will’t do something.
“You’ll be able to’t plan something and also you don’t know plan something as a result of we don’t know what the league will say concerning the place we’re going to be.”
Fleet are in a precarious place, ending only one place above the relegation locations. If all outcomes are expunged then they’re free to plan forward to a different season within the Nationwide League.
If the league resolve to complete with placings as they’re, once more they are going to be secure. But when they resolve to go down the route of judging positions on common factors per sport, then they’ll drop a spot into the relegation zone.
“We have to know what they’re doing,” stated Lovell.
“We now have received gamers we’re eager to speak to, we’ve received targets, like some other membership, folks we wish to get in however till we have now an concept of what the Nationwide League are going, you possibly can’t do something.
“We now have to attend and see and as quickly as a choice is made, maybe we will begin making issues occur, but it surely all is determined by when the subsequent season goes to start out. There are a lot more questions that have to be answered earlier than we will have a plan in place.”
Like most groups at their stage, participant contracts expired on the finish of April. Fleet could need to renegotiate with a few of these however don’t even know when a brand new season is more likely to start.
Lovell appreciates it’s a troublesome name for the league to make, with so many alternative opinions.
The previous Gills boss stated: “Nearly all of the league is about promotion and relegation and that’s the reason it’s tough for the league to decide on what they’ll do.
“At Ebbsfleet we perceive that however a choice must be made by some means and hopefully it’s one which fits us. Whether it is by common factors per sport then we go down by 0.001 of a degree or one thing, that’s not honest actually. We are going to ave to attend and see.”
Groups on the prime may very well be disenchanted too. The EFL have indicated that if their season isn’t concluded then no staff can be relegated, that means only one place as an alternative of two for groups developing from the Nationwide League.
Barrow cleared the path, 4 factors forward of Harrogate City, who would possibly effectively have fancied their possibilities of clawing that again with 9 video games remaining.
