Coventry. Close could go either way.

Workington. Home advantage to give Town the edge.

Doncaster. Back at Keepmoat and we owe them one.

North Wales. Crusaders win but not by a landslide.

Keighley. The better side.

Just read COVID has hit the Cumbria Derby game, this beastly virus is wrecking the sport after almost 2 seasons, will we be ever rid of it? Mass vaccination hasn't stopped sporting COVID protocols. Players welfare is and should always be paramount.

What's the percentage of games that teams in League 1 need to complete to qualify for the play-off?

13 I’m told . We’ve 6 games left scheduled without rescheduling the others

Teams can still compete in the play-offs if they don't meet the minimum number of games but they are assumed to have lost the games to make up the number.

Taking an extreme example if one team was W9 L9, whilst another was W12 L0 the second team would still finish above the first team even though they hadn't played the minimum number of games

I’m not doubting you but I’m somewhat confused . How can you assume that a team has lost a game they haven’t played , maybe through no fault of their own ?

Planning week to week has become impossible. We were hit by covid last week. We tried to plan by having a larger than usual squad. We've pieced together a team this week by loaning a few players from Sheffield. Not ideal but I'd rather see the game go ahead. It's giving Hunslet a huge advantage but what's the alternative?

Team A 9/18 50% Team B 12/12 would be 100% but the minimum number of games is 13 so they become 12/13 or 92%

It wouldn't be fair on Team B not to make the play-offs just because they hadn't played the minimum number of games

How I have described is how it works

To be fair everyone is in the same boat. Most clubs have had players missing throughout the season through testing positive or being pinged

Fancied going to Skolars today, spur of the moment decision to get out of the house.

No onsite tickets being sold, online sales already ended.

Conplete covid ######. 

Tickets from Skolars via online sales can be purchased up until 3pm today.
