BBC story: "it's not definite"

But the club may not be allowed to compete in the play-offs anyway as they only have a three-year lease left on their Rockingham Road home.
Clubs need a lease of more than 10 years, or their own ground, in order to be eligible for promotion.
Manager Harper ... "All I've been told is that it's unlikely we would be allowed in the play-offs due to the ground situation, but it's not definite."
