It may not directly affect mid-table Torquay United but the Gulls will have a say in how the Vanarama National League's promotion and relegation issues are resolved.

Following the recent vote to end the regular season early in the face of the Covid-19 crisis, the NL is now canvassing clubs on how to fix final table positions and whether eventually to use play-offs.

As things stand, the English Football League (EFL) is still working on the understanding that two clubs will be promoted from the National League to League Two.

Barrow are currently four points clear at the top, with Harrogate Town leading a play-off group including ex-Football League teams Notts County, Yeovil Town, FC Halifax Town and Stockport County.

But the NL have not yet confirmed 'Two-Up', something which worries many of its clubs.

The NL board, which includes chairman Brian Barwick, chief executive Mike Tattersall and the chairmen of several member clubs, had hinted at follow-up votes before it recommended ending the regular season early.

It now says that clubs have until this weekend to put forward their views on placings, Play-Offs etc and that it will meet early next week to make final decisions.
