National League – PPG Table

Here is the Points Per Game Table for the National League.

Could this be the way to solve the season if it is to end early and without resolution?

The PPG table hardly differs from the main table below as most teams have played a similar amount of games. In this Division we have play-offs which will certainly provide arguments when we discuss how the season should be solved if it ends early. Positions 2 to 7 were to play-off to find a winner that would go up to the Football League with the team at the top. As there is unlikely to be any football allowed for a few months once it has been stopped it is unrealistic to hold the play-offs so my simple solution would be to just promote the top 2 in the PPG table. That would be Barrow and Harrogate Town and although the teams closest to them may moan and not be too happy about it I think it’s hard to argue against them deserving promotion more than anyone else in this unique situation that we find ourselves in.
The relegation rules state that the bottom 4 would go down. Again the bottom 4 in both tables are the same so it is hard to argue against those being the sides that drop a Division.
