Huddersfield Town will discover their final position in the Championship on Thursday when the Football League rule on their abandoned final game at Blackpool.
Should the John Smith’s Stadium club be awarded all three points for a game ended by a 48th-minute pitch invasion by protesting home fans, they will climb a place to 15th in the table.
But should the FL Board decide the final result should be 0-0, as it was when referee Mick Russell took the players off, Town will remain below Leeds United in 16th.
Chris Powell’s side had 54 points after 45 games, with Leeds, who are being linked with former Reading manager Nigel Adkins, finishing their 46 matches on 56 points.
Relegated Blackpool, whose former Town boss Lee Clark resigned last weekend, had 25 points after 45 games, are sure to finish bottom of the table whatever the powers-that-be decide.

Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston is a member of the 10-strong group who will rule on the outcome of the Bloomfield Road clash.
But the man who was the target of the fans’ protest over his running of the seaside club will leave the room when the matter is discussed.
The other board members are Football League chairman Greg Clarke and chief executive Shaun Harvey, independent non-executive directors Richard Bowker and Debbie Jevans, Oyston’s fellow Championship representatives Andy Ambler (Millwall) and Keith Lamb (Middlesbrough), League I duo Andrew Cullen (MK Dons) and James Rodwell (Scunthorpe United) and League II representative Ian Lenagan (Oxford United).
Both Town and Blackpool have been asked for their observations on the events of Saturday, May 2, which are also under investigation by the Football Association.
