Jon Underwood fears Slough Town’s chances of promotion could well be thrown out of the window if the National League South season is declared null and void due to coronavirus.

The Rebels joint manager can’t see the side playing again this season and, if the campaign isn’t resumed later in the spring or summer, he thinks the club could be denied their shot at promotion through the play-offs.

The side was beaten 2-0 at Weymouth on Saturday in the final round of matches before the league was suspended until April 3. However, they remain fifth in the table and looked a good bet to extend their campaign by finishing in the top seven.

“I personally can’t see us playing again this season,” said Underwood.

“I cannot see a way that we will be back playing football in May. I think once you reach that point the season has to end.

“It’s so difficult because whatever decision is taken, some people will feel hard done by. We’re in a play off spot but we’re one of six teams in there.”
