EFL confirm huge play-off decision that could impact Nottingham Forest

By Josh Holland

The EFL has confirmed that the use of VAR will be use for the Championship play-off final on Sunday May 29.

It was announced on Wednesday that the video technology would not be used in either of the semi-finals involving Huddersfield Town, Luton Town, Forest and Sheffield United - despite all four clubs being asked about the matter and submitting positive responses.

The decision means VAR will be used for the first time in a Reds fixture since the FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Premier League side Liverpool at the City Ground. Forest boss Cooper commented on the technology after Jurgen Klopp's side were awarded a goal following a tight offside and also avoided conceding a penalty when Alisson Becker brought down Ryan Yates.

Cooper said at the time: "It's the first time I've experienced VAR and the first time we've had it here. I guess you have to trust the process of what it is. It would definitely have been interesting if they were down the other end."

Forest were left to rue the lack of VAR in their crucial Championship clash with Bournemouth recently, when a 1-0 defeat ended their hopes of automatic promotion. It might have been different, though, had Sam Surridge not been wrongly flagged offside seconds before he appeared to be fouled in the penalty area.

Meanwhile, the EFL say they remain in discussions over whether VAR will be used in the League One and League Two play-off finals.
