Hawkeye was implemented in the Premier League and Championship in 2017/18 and all of this season’s EFL play-off matches will benefit from the technology.

EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said: “We are extremely aware of the difficult decisions facing match officials on any given match day, and we welcome the impact GLT is having to help PGMOL officials to make the right calls, even in the tightest of situations. 

“Goal-line Technology has been a welcome and significant addition to the Championship throughout the 2017/18 season, playing an important role in the outcome of the campaign. 

“It is therefore appropriate that the technology is incorporated into all Play-Off matches across all three divisions of the EFL given the magnitude of the outcome of every single game at this time of the season.”
