Artificial pitches could make a return to English football after club chairmen voted to hold a formal consultation on the controversial surfaces.

The so-called 'plastic pitches' were banned in all four divisions in 1995 when the likes of Luton and QPR were deemed to gain too great a home advantage from having an artificial surface.

Now the Football League say there is a "clear appetite" among some members to take advantage of the improvement in artificial pitches - they have now been sanctioned by FIFA and UEFA and are used in many countries.
