VAR will be used in all three of this season's English Football League play-off finals at Wembley for the first time, the league has confirmed.

The EFL said last week that the system would be used for the Championship play-off final on 29 May.

It will now also be used for both the League One and League Two finals.

The League One final will take place on Saturday, 21 May, with Sunderland taking on Wycombe Wanderers for a place in the Championship next season.

In the Championship, Huddersfield face Luton in the second leg of their semi-final on Monday after the sides drew 1-1 at Kenilworth Road on Friday.

Nottingham Forest will take a 2-1 lead into the second leg of their semi-final against Sheffield United at the City Ground on Tuesday.

Mansfield and Swindon also both won the first legs of their respective League Two play-off semi-final ties against Northampton and Port Vale 2-1 over the weekend, with the returns to be played on Wednesday and Thursday.

The winners of those semi-finals will meet at Wembley on Saturday, 28 May.
