It means Pompey will now face Oxford United in the play-off semi-finals in pursuit of promotion.

The Football League today staged an EGM aimed at finally resolving the long-running stalemate over the 2019-20 campaign.

This morning, it was decided to retain the four-team play-off format, use the unweighted points per game model and keep a promotion and relegation scenario.

It was then left to League One clubs to this afternoon decide whether to resume the current season.

However, they opted for its curtailment, despite the likes of Pompey and Peterborough wishing for it to continue.

Using points per game to calculate the final League One league table, the outcome is Coventry and Rotherham are the teams promoted to the Championship.

That leaves Pompey, Oxford United, Wycombe and Fleetwood as play-off semi-finalists.

The teams relegated are Southend, Bolton and Tranmere.
