Bolton boss Owen Coyle feels football would benefit from the introduction of goal-line technology - so long as the system was "foolproof".
The sport's rule-makers shut the door on the innovation indefinitely this weekend when the International Football Association Board meeting in Zurich voted against continuing any further experiments with goal-line technology.
"The one thing I have always said is that I accept there is a lot of tinkering which goes on," Coyle said. "Ultimately you don't want to change too much about the game, because it is the best game in the world. But I do believe with goal-line technology that, if there is a system in place that is foolproof, then that should be brought in."
The English and Scottish Football Associations had voted in favour of technology only to be defeated by six votes to two, and Coyle has added his support for the idea, although the manager stressed there could be no margin for error with any new system which was introduced.
He added: "It's such a big (thing). Goals change games and ultimately change the results of matches.
"So I'm a big believer that if there is a foolproof scheme in terms of goal-line technology, then it should be brought in."
