What happens if Leyton Orient vs Tottenham is called off?

If the third-round tie is cancelled, Spurs will receive a bye to the next round and Orient will miss out on a £100,000 windfall with the game due to be televised on Sky Sports.

With the O’s first team in self-isolation, they even suggested fielding their youth outfit against Jose Mourinho’s side because the kids have not been in contact with the first team.

It is believed Spurs are not happy with that prospect amid fears of the risk of infection just days ahead of a Europa League tie.

The final decision is with Public Health England.

The EFL have been working with the clubs to find a resolution, with Spurs showing their support for their neighbours.

But with zero space left in a congested fixture programme there are no possible dates for the game to be rescheduled.
