Stevenage are facing up to relegation to the National League after Macclesfield Town’s latest points deduction failed to put them bottom of League Two.

With one team set to go down into non-league, the hope for Stevenage was that Macc’s latest points deduction would be enough to send them into 24th place. The Silkmen were docked two points for breaches of regulations over non-payment of wages and have also been fined £20,000, ordered to cover payment of legal costs, and given an additional four-point penalty (suspended and carried forward to next season).

The BBC say that Stevenage’s only hope of a reprieve now is if the National League is unable to assure the EFL board that their 2020/21 season is able to go ahead.
