"I don't like it but we may have to accept it" says Paul

Paul Lambert is still hopeful that the season will be finished with games played in front of supporters but admits playing behind closed doors might have to be accepted.

The Town boss is adamant that the 2019/20 campaign should reach a conclusion when it’s deemed safe to resume but it may be in a form not to his liking.

“There are a few reasons this season has to finish,” the Town boss told the Club website.

“For us, we have a good chance to be involved in the promotion race and for football in general, there are too many questions left to answer for the season to be null and void.

“In an ideal world, we will finish the season with supporters in stadiums. The timescale is the problem, we just don’t know when we will be able to start again.

“We may have to accept that we play behind closed doors when the season resumes. I don’t like that. Football is for the fans and I can guarantee you that it won’t feel the same if you are winning games and lifting trophies if there are no fans there.

“Liverpool have waited 30 years to win the League. Imagine them celebrating at Anfield with no one there.

“People’s lives are more important than football though and if it means we have to go down the closed doors route, we will just have to accept it.”
