EFL statement: Walsall v Macclesfield Town
This weekend’s League Two fixture between Walsall and Macclesfield Town will go ahead as originally scheduled on Saturday at 3pm.
As a result of ongoing discussions between the EFL, the club and the PFA during the course of the last seven days, the League has ensured outstanding payments owed to players have now been paid and the club has confirmed it will be in a position to fulfil the fixture.
The EFL remains in dialogue with the club over the wider challenges currently faced by the ownership and will continue to offer whatever practical assistance is available in accordance with its Regulations.
Further to the charges issued in respect of Regulation breaches for late payment of wages and non-fulfilment of last weekend’s game against Crewe Alexandra, the club will face an Independent Disciplinary Commission later this month.
