According to reports on the BBC Sport website, artificial football pitches could be set for a return in the Football League, with League One and League Two chairmen set to back their return at a meeting to be held tomorrow (Thursday).

The report, which can be found HERE, states; "Chairmen from League One and Two clubs are expected to vote in favour of the return of artificial pitches at a meeting in Derby on Thursday.

"Clubs will be balloted on whether to permit 3G ("third generation") surfaces in their competitions from next season."

At a meeting, held at Walsall's Banks's Stadium in September, chairmen were shown a presentation on the pros and cons of 3G surfaces and asked to take an indicative vote.

A total of 29 out of 46 clubs in the Football League's bottom two tiers said they would back the reintroduction, while league and club sources are confident the motion will be be formally passed at Thursday's summit at Derby County's iPro Stadium.
