Proposals for clubs to be permitted to use artificial playing surfaces for matches in Sky Bet League One and Sky Bet League Two from the beginning of the 2015/16 season have not been approved following an unprecedented tied vote by Football League clubs.

At an EGM held at Derby County's iPro Stadium earlier this afternoon, thirty-four clubs voted in favour of the proposals with thirty-four against and four abstentions.

The Football League's Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said:  "This vote is reflective of the fact that this issue divides opinion amongst clubs as much as it does across the football public.

"While the outcome is different to previous indicative votes, it demonstrates that there is still a desire amongst clubs to find out more about artificial playing surfaces before taking such a significant step."
