PGMOL chief Howard Webb will reportedly seek to put Nottingham Forest's VAR controversy to bed with peace talks scheduled for Friday.

Forest were left incensed by the non-penalty decisions that were reached between referee Anthony Taylor and VAR Stuart Attwell during Sunday's loss to Everton.

The club's request to access the audio files between the match officials has been granted, as is protocol, and it is now written by Mail Online exactly how this will unfold. Crucially, it seems PGMOL - although unhappy with the club's reaction - hope to resolve matters quickly and amicably ahead of Sunday's clash with Manchester City.

They report that Forest will receive the audio files they requested tomorrow, on Friday April 26, alongside a scheduled private video conference with Webb to discuss matters. He will likely speak to owner Evangelos Marinakis or minority shareholder Sokratis Kominakis, and depending on his team's training regime, manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

Depending on the outcome of this meeting, the final issues to be settled as a result of this controversy will be investigations opened by the Premier League and Football Association.

The league issued a statement on Monday disappointed with Forest's response and promised to look into their initial statement in line with their rules, whilst the FA followed up by asking the club, Nuno, defender Neco Williams and consultant Mark Clattenburg to clarify their post-match comments in view of potential charges.
