Hawk-Eye Innovations have apologised for the erroneous message displayed on the big screen as Dele Alli helped bring ​Tottenham level with Watford during their Premier League encounter.


Spurs midfielder Dele Alli ​salvaged a point for his team with four minutes left, cancelling out Abdoulaye Doucoure's opening goal. However, referee Christopher Kavanagh initiated a VAR check for a suspected handball.

Kavanagh signalled for a goal following the review, but an error from the base at Stockley Park triggered a message of 'No Goal' on the big screen.


The situation caused confusion among both sets of supporters - and the company, Hawk-Eye Innovations, has vowed to work alongside the ​Premier League to ensure there is no repeat scenario.


"Hawk-Eye apologises to Spurs and Watford fans for the confusion caused when an incorrect graphic was sent to the big screen. We are working together with PGMOL and the Premier League to understand the root cause of this problem and propose measures to ensure it won't happen again," the company stated on Twitter.

Tottenham Hotspur were extremely lucky to get a goal considering how tight Watford’s defence had been all game. The draws takes Mauricio Pochettino’s men up to seventh on the table, while ​Watford, who are still without a win, sit at the bottom with just four points from their opening nine games.


Tottenham host Red Star Belgrade in the ​Champions League mid-week, and they will be hoping the Watford draw can help turn their season around.
