Barrow's promotion rivals Harrogate are preparing for a return to training on Tuesday as they gear up for the National League play-offs.

A resolution to decide the final league table on a points-per-game basis, with promotion, relegation and a play-off competition is being considered by member clubs, who must submit their responses by close of business on Monday.

The North Yorkshire side sit second, so would be in line for a home semi-final if the resolution passes, with Barrow set to be automatically promoted.

Manager Simon Weaver said: "The players have been given the instruction to come into training on Tuesday.

"Although it will be different, we've got a job to do and it would be amazing to see it through now."

Weaver said the plan was for the play-off quarter-finals to be played on July 18, which would mean the semi-final for Harrogate taking place a few days after that.

The final will be played at a neutral venue on or before July 31.

If the resolution passes, Barrow would be promoted to League Two, taking the EFL back up to 72 members following the demise of Bury. The play-off winners would take the place of whoever is relegated from League Two.

Stevenage are bottom as it stands, but second-bottom Macclesfield face further EFL charges which could lead to an independent disciplinary commission imposing further points penalties on them.
