Elgin City chairman Graham Tatters will get an opportunity to air his views in the League 2 meeting, which will be held later this afternoon.

Before that, board members from the Premiership, Championship and League 1 clubs will have held their own league discussions.

Updates on health and safety regulations in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak will also be issued to all clubs.

Elgin is one club keen to see their season played to a conclusion if public safety allows it, so they can continue their challenge for promotion.

Gavin Price's side had climbed to third place in League 2 when Scottish football was halted on March 13, and were firmly in contention for a play-offs place with eight fixtures remaining.

City had won six of their previous seven matches and confidence was high that the club could gain their first move up the leagues in their 20-year league history.

However, with the current COVID-19 outbreak placing the country in lockdown, health experts expect it to be many weeks before restrictions will be eased.
