Hi everyone, sorry if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but a lot of Coventry supporters seem to think they are about to be kicked out of the football league for failing to meet a deadline yesterday to pay around £600k. Other supporters have also been discussing who replaces Coventry if this were to happen, many of whom have suggested that it is the team from the league below with the highest points outside of the promoted teams who would be promoted, rather than having a relegated team reinstated. Seeing as Fleetwood (4th) went up from the playoffs, that would leave us in 5th benefiting from this - if, of course, this is how it works.

My question is this: are there some guidelines to explain what happens in the event of Coventry losing their football league status? Would it be Southend who benefit as in the scenario stated above?
