The NIFL Premiership Committee will meet tonight to discuss the conclusion of the 19/20 season.

The Northern Ireland Football League (NIFL) Premiership Committee meeting tonight could turn into an explosive affair with a host of clubs frustrated by the "closed door" approach of those tasked with providing guidance for a conclusion to the season.

The 12 top-flight clubs will be represented at the video conference with the NIFL Steering Committee also in attendance.

The Steering Committee will outline their proposals to conclude the 2019-2020 campaign with the IFA demanding a decision by Friday in order to inform Uefa.
