Last Updated: 30/04/17 4:00pm
There were farcical scenes at the end of Leyton Orient's final home match of the season as they finished their defeat by Colchester behind closed doors at the Matchroom Stadium.
After an initial announcement that the match had been abandoned, the EFL announced that they would conclude the game from the 85th minute a couple of hours after the fans had been cleared off of the pitch.
The final few moments then just saw Leyton Orient knocking the ball around the back, as both sides played out the 3-1 result.
An EFL statement said: "The Sky Bet League Two fixture between Leyton Orient and Colchester United has been concluded behind closed doors.
"The decision to play the match to a conclusion was agreed with both managers and with the support of the match officials. The Police and Stadium security staff were happy for the match to restart and this took place at approximately 6.40pm.
"Despite requests for the fans to clear the pitch, there wasn't sufficient movement to allow the game to restart following a pitch invasion. A decision was taken with the Police to announce that the game had been abandoned, as it was felt this would help clear the pitch, which proved correct.
"However, it was deemed appropriate that the game needed to be played to a conclusion in order to maintain the integrity of the competition and in respect of Colchester United's position of being able to qualify for the Sky Bet League Two play-offs."
