It's not the outcome the Blues had championed since football was suspended back in March.

However, with club representatives also sanctioning promotion and relegation via an unweighted points-per-game formula, its means Pompey's season will continue as they prepare to contest the end-of-season play-offs.

A two-legged fixture against Oxford awaits Kenny Jackett's side, with dates yet to be confirmed.

And a potential Wembley final against either Fleetwood or Wycombe lies in wait for the winner, giving the Blues one last chance to return to the Championship this season and joining already-promoted Coventry and Rotherham.

It means there's still much to play for despite today's EFL decision. And that’s something Eisner is looking forward too already.

Following today's announcement, the Blues' American owner tweeted: 'Can’t wait to watch @Pompey compete in the playoffs!

‘A strange season, but I’m glad it will have some closure. Dates to be announced soon. #PUP'.
