Tranmere chairman Mark Palios has called for the season to be voided if it can’t be completed as League One clubs prepare to decide what will happen to their campaign.

And Rovers have nailed their colours to the mast with the FA’s former chief-executive not keen on points per game condemning his relegation-threatened side to a place in League Two – if games can’t be finished.

Palios said: ‘In a sporting competition, you set the rules at the start of a competition and everybody's happy, understands the rules and the consequences of success and failure - you don't change the rules of the league mid-season.

‘If the decision is made that we will not play the season out then I think it's quite clear the season should be voided, rather than deciding on what is a mid-season change of rules and a fairly arbitrary decision as regards how we deal with promotion and relegation.

‘In order to find an acceptable compromise, it has to be just: a compromise that is fair.

‘Our suggested solution follows on from what League Two voted in favour of last week and while that’s not a binding vote, it’s indicative of where their intentions were and that is promotions, without relegation.’
