Leyton Orient chief executive Danny Macklin says it’s too early to make a decision the result of the League Two season.

All 24 fourth-tier clubs will hold a call with the EFL on Tuesday, 

with many expected to push for an instantaneous end to the campaign amid fears they might go bust if the shutdown continues indefinitely.

Ending the season would have huge ramifications for the remainder of the professional game and Macklin,

 whose 17th-placed side are neither in peril of relegation nor contention for the play-offs, believes it’s still too early for a choice .

“We don’t got to make an instantaneous decision – we’d like to remember of all the ramifications of an early finish, 

of trying to attend and of playing behind-closed-doors,” he told Standard Sport.

“I get the argument for trying to attend , i buy the argument for trying to succeed in an instantaneous conclusion.”

“There’s no formal agenda set, it’s more of an open discussion. We’ve had these calls every few weeks – 

we welcome that and it’s extremely healthy that we’re having that in these unprecedented and really difficult times.

“Today is about fact-finding. it’s extremely much sharing information, concerns we have got about moving the sport and therefore the leagues forward.”

“The game must take this chance to re-set itself,” he added. “If it doesn’t it’ll regret it. 

We’re planning on a scenario where we may have our incomes for the 2020-21 season suffering from the maximum amount as 50 per cent.”
