Leeds’ Premier League clash with Southampton could be postponed in order to prevent Shrewsbury Town being thrown out of the FA Cup.
According to The Telegraph, talks have begun over the potential rescheduling of the fixture, which is currently due to take place next Wednesday.
Southampton’s FA Cup third-round tie with Shrewsbury, which was postponed due to a major coronavirus outbreak at the League One club, is also due to take place on the same day.
The Shrews are still waiting to learn the fate of their cup run, which is at risk of coming to a premature end via forfeit.
Chairman Brian Caldwell believes it would be ‘unfair’ for them to be booted out of the cup due to a situation ‘completely outside’ of their control.
