Doesn't look great for Derby. EFL “has developed an interchangeable fixture list for Derby and Wycombe while disciplinary process is finalised”.

The financial and other impacts of imposing a points deduction (and therefore relegation) on appeal would be so much more substantial than the current £100,000 fine that I just do not see how it could possibly be fair as a matter of natural justice to do it. I can't see it happening.

Bit harsh on Wycombe. Difficult to plan for the coming season when you don't know which division you'll be playing in

Equally, I suppose they'd take an unexpected season in the division above.  Even if it means they risk getting relegated again - at least they have a chance at staying up.

It happened to Sunderland 30 years ago when Swindon initially got promoted but then relegated again for financial irregularities. Sunderland suddenly found themselves in the old First Division and were completely unprepared for it although they did improve through the season did go straight back down.
