AHEAD OF THE GAME: Fear of fan dissent during Queen tributes a factor behind the Premier League halt

AHEAD OF THE GAME: Concern that tributes to the Queen may not have been universally respected - and the potential for global embarrassment in the event of any dissent from fans - was a factor in the decision to call off all football in the United Kingdom this weekend. A number of Shamrock Rovers supporters caused outrage by singing offensive songs during their Europa Conference League game against Swedish club Djurgardens on Thursday evening.  And while their actions are likely to have stemmed from Irish Republican sentiment, the fact that some English clubs also have politicised elements of their fan base was mentioned in the discussions over football's shutdown.

EFL confirm hawk-eye goal line technology failure after major error in Championship clash

The Seasiders picked up all three points at the John Smith's Stadium after Theo Corbeanu's first half goal but the controversy came in the second half when the Terriers thought they had equalised. Referee John Busby waved for play to continue as Yuta Nakayama celebrated after believing he had scored just after the hour mark. Nakayama had powered in a header and when Danny Grimshaw saved, managed to squeeze the ball between the goalkeeper and his post and over the line. Grimshaw reacted quickly to smother the ball and swiftly held it back in play. After consulting his wristwatch linked to the Hawk-Eye system at use in all Championships grounds, the unsighted official did not give the goal.

Corbeanu strike hands Blackpool important 1-0 win at Huddersfield to leave hosts in the bottom three

STUART BRENNAN FOR THE DAILY MAIL: Huddersfield boss Danny Schofield said an apology was simply not good enough after an apparent failure of the goal decision system cost his team an equalising goal. The Terriers remain second-bottom of the Championship after referee John Busby waved for play to continue as Japan international Yuta Nakayama celebrated what seemed to be a scrappy strike just after the hour mark. Nakayama had powered in a header from Sorba Thomas's corner and when Danny Grimshaw saved, squeezed the ball between Grimshaw and his post and over the line.
