Championship Play-offs- Derby v QPR sees goal line technology in use

eNewsletter
The Football League have revealed goal line technology will be used at the Championship Play-off between Derby and QPR on Saturday.

Goal line technology was only introduced in the Premier League at the beginning of the 2013/14 season but has not yet been introduced in the Football League.

However, the Hawkeye Goal Decision System will be used at all three Football League play-off finals this Bank Holiday weekend - starting with the biggest game of the three on Saturday.

With the game reputed to be worth in the region of £100 million to the winner it seems appropriate that the referee can call on technology to help with any big goal line decisions.

The Football League's Chief Operating Officer, Andy Williamson, told the Football League website: "It will be another historic moment for The Football League when goal line technology is used in a Play-Off match for the first time.

"The Football League has long been a supporter of technology and innovation. Although it is not practical to provide it across all League grounds at the current time, when the technology is there we will always look to use it."

It will be a firt for all six teams involved in the three weekend finals - Derby and QPR, Rotherham and Orient and Fleetwood and Burton.
