Gerard Lawlor plans discussions with Irish League clubs, the Irish FA and UEFA in the coming week. The Northern Ireland Football League Chairman is determined to cover all bases.

On Lawlor's agenda will be a numbers game and how many matches can be played in the Danske Bank Premiership this season. He still hopes it is 38 but admits "we are getting very close to the wire".

With three encounters called off due to the weather yesterday, the fixture backlog has increased. Covid-19 has led to postponements in the 2020-2021 campaign but it is Jack Frost who is having the biggest impact now, with some comedians suggesting Glentoran and Larne are already in a race to sign him!
