On the back of SFA chief executive Ian Maxwell asking Championship clubs is they want to continue playing, BBC Sport are reporting that at least one team in the division – Inverness – are in favour of playing on.

This is potentially important as the report goes on to reveal that in the email Maxwell sent to clubs it states that one club have publicly called for a football suspension.

“One interview in the media this week prompted a wide-ranging discussion at the Joint Response Group meeting on the ongoing impact of the virus”Maxwell said (BBC Sport).

“A strong view”

“Given the need for the Championship clubs to undertake a considerable testing regime in order to continue, there was a strong view that Championship clubs should be asked to confirm or otherwise their willingness to play on during the initial three-week suspension” the SFA chief stated.

However, the report reveals that this was thought to be Inverness, but it seems that this is not the case. Maxwell may have taken quotes from Inverness boss John Robertson as the official club view on suspending football.

Therefore, we now know that one team wants to keep playing. The deadline for responding to Maxwell is on Monday.

Decision will be made in next few days

So we will find out in the next few days the views of the nine other clubs in the league. Should a majority want to keep on playing, then the league will surely go on.

Inverness were meant to facing Raith this weekend, but that game has been postponed following a Covid-19 outbreak at Raith.

If the league gets the go-ahead to continue, then they will be in action next week against Alloa.
