It would be a lot less stressful if Bolton took the easy route and registered a top three finish, but just in case, the dates for the play-offs were confirmed this morning.
Firstly, the final day of the regular season will see all matches kick-off at 3pm on Saturday 8th May, this was originally in the fixture list and isn’t a change.
The play-off dates and times were also confirmed for all three divisions, including League Two. The first legs will be played on Thursday 20th May, with one tie kicking off at 6pm and the other at 8.15pm. The second legs will be played three days later, on Sunday 23rd May, one game at 12.30pm, and the other at 6.30pm. The final will be played at Wembley on Bank Holiday Monday, 31st May, with a traditional 3pm kick-off. All the matches will be shown live on Sky Sports.
Due to the dates, as long as there isn’t a hitch with the easing of coronavirus restrictions, the EFL have done the right thing and scheduled the entire play-offs to ensure fans will be allowed into all matches.
Hopefully, we won’t need any of these dates. It would be too stressful. Just go up automatically.
