Exclusive: Mills fears promotion will be 'Snatched' from Leeds after major development
Danny Mills fears promotion could be ‘snatched’ away from Leeds United and West Brom after League Two was terminated early.
As a result, the former England international, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, called for greater alignment and planning from the Premier League and EFL.
While the Premier League is edging closer to a return to action in June there is still real doubts over whether the Championship will follow.
League Two clubs this week decided to finalise their standings on a points-per-game basis.
However, it is apparent some of the Premier League’s lower clubs would object to Leeds and West Brom’s promotion on this basis.
When asked by Football Insider if the Premier League and EFL need to be more tightly aligned on their restart plans, Mills said: “This is where they have to come up with a plan. They should have been working on this.

“There should be plans A, B and C. It needs to be a little bit like what the government has done. This is phase one, this is phase two and this is phase three.
“We have had nothing like that in football. We have absolutely no idea what the plan is and that is the hardest thing.
“The Championship is all about the clamour to get into the Premier League and the clamour to catch the Golden Goose.
“Some clubs have planned for two, three, four, five seasons to get into the Premier League. If they are peaking right now it is not right to snatch that away from them.”
Norwich City sporting director Stuart Webber this week insisted promotion should not be handed to Championship sides unless their remaining fixtures are completed.
Leeds top of the Championship, seven points clear of third-placed Fulham and the play-off spots.
