BARROW AFC's success this season could potentially be undone by complications caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Bluebirds had been top of the National League for close to four months before the campaign was interrupted, with the remaining fixtures then being cancelled last month.

Since then, the Holker Street outfit have faced a nervous wait as to whether they will be promoted to League Two, with the National League awaiting the decision by the English Football League on how their season will be concluded.

League Two clubs decided on Friday to end their campaigns early and a proposal to decide league placings based on a points per game system is on the table.

The final decision is expected on Wednesday, while the fact that the EFL have an open spot in League Two, left by the expulsion of Bury last year, could yet work in Barrow's favour, with promotion meaning a way out of non-League football for the first time since 1972.

The EFL said clubs in the fourth tier 'unanimously indicated' a wish for the season to end via a 'framework' which includes future tables being decided on points per game and the play-offs remaining as planned.

Barrow boss Ian Evatt told the BBC: "Hopefully we come on the end of the right outcome, which is what we deserve and I don't think many people can argue about it.

"If we follow the EFL, which is what I understand we've been waiting for, I'm guessing we'll be crowned champions and will hopefully be invited to take Bury's place."
