Three former referees will make up a panel to review incidents that have been missed over a weekend, it has been announced.

The season-long pilot will include a trio of unnamed referees who will be on standby to review video footage when needed.

The review will be conducted via video link between the FA's disciplinary department and each member of the panel, to determine whether further action will be taken, revealed the Telegraph.

Callum McManaman's horror tackle on Massadio Haidara, for which the midfielder received no further action, is the type of incident that has sparked the change in policy.

The Football League will not introduce the scheme this season, but will monitor developments in the Premier League.

The decision was also taken to not introduce any form of retrospective action for diving.
