Barrow manager Ian Evatt said the club was still awaiting a decision on whether or not the club would be promoted to League Two.

Four points clear at the top of the table with only a handful of games left to play before the Covid-19 crisis hit the UK, promotion would see the Bluebirds return to the English Football League for the first time since 1972.

Yesterday, the National League said it would indefinitely suspend its three divisions due to Covid-19.

Having controversially played a day after the Premier League and EFL had announced their games were off due to Covid-19, the competition belatedly called a halt to their matches on March 16.

Discussions as to how best to finish the season have continued and the National League has now confirmed its three seasons are subject to an undetermined postponement.

“I’m guessing this is the first phase of protocol,” said Evatt.

“There was no way football was going to continue given the situation we find ourselves in now with the Coronavirus pandemic.”
