History will be made at the Riverside tonight as VAR will assist in governing our Carabao Cup tie against Burton Albion.
A multi-camera network will be in place for the quarter final tie on December 18 (kick-off 7.45pm), used alongside HawkEye to assist the on-field officials.
The technology can be used in four instances: goals, penalties, red cards and mistaken identity. Should VAR be called upon, an on-field review will take place before any decision is upheld or overturned.
It's the first time the Video Assistant Referee will ever be used at a Championship venue having been trialled at a number of Premier League stadia in earlier rounds of the competition.
It has now been confirmed that the match has not been selected for broadcast by Sky Sports.
As we do not have the rights to broadcast Carabao Cup matches via our RiversideLIVE matchday streaming service, getting your ticket is the only way to watch this cup clash here in the UK.
