Chris Sutton will be keeping a close eye on the SPFL as Zero Hour approaches at 5pm tonight.

Three days of arguing and debate will be put to the vote as the talk ends with a decision taken on the outcome of the three lower divisions for the 2019/20 season.

Yesterday the SFA announced that there would be no training before June 10 at the earliest with a month of preparations required before matches could start, probably in front of no supporters.

Against that prospect clubs can call the 2019/20 season to a halt today, decide the issues by average points per game then pick up their prize money and prepare for a new season that could start in August.

It seems the sensible option, later on this month The Premiership could be decided in the same way.

Hearts and Partick Thistle have an obvious interest but if they and others want to vote against today’s proposals the April pay-roll will be a severe test for many clubs.

More than half of the players in the three lower divisions will be out of contract in June- the season that they hope to resume will have little bearing on the season that came to a halt at the start of March.
