Rotherham United will be one of the EFL clubs to have received notification from the EFL revealing plans to play the remaining games of this season in just fifty-six days.

The clubs have also been told not to return to training until 16th May at the earliest with Chairman Rick Parry saying teams will be given adequate time to prepare for the re-start of the season.

In the letter, which has been seen by The Yorkshire Post , Mr Parry says that, at this stage, the EFL are ‘working on the assumption that matches will be played behind closed doors’ when the league resumes while also saying that the end of season play-offs will also take place.

Mr Parry ended the letter saying, ‘How and when we return (including training) is clearly subject to change and any decisions will be taken in conjunction with the Government and relevant health authorities.’

The Millers, who currently sit in second place in League One, have nine games left to play (not including any play-offs that might be needed) which, if it’s just league games we are talking about would mean approximately a game every six days or so – which, doesn’t really sound so bad. But, if those fifty-six days include play-offs and finals then it is a completely different equation isn’t it.

Personally, I’d be surprised if anyone returned to training on the 16th May, I just can’t see it. Can you?
