PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor has added his voice to those calling for the introduction of goal-line technology in football.
The issue has risen to the fore once again in the wake of Chelsea's FA Cup semi-final date with Tottenham on Sunday.
It is widely accepted that the Blues enjoyed a huge slice of luck during that contest as they were awarded a potentially crucial goal when the ball did not appear to have crossed the line.
Prominent members of the Chelsea camp have since conceded as much and admitted that they would like to see technological advances embraced by the relevant authorities.
FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce says a decision regarding the future use of goal-line technology could be made as early as July, and PFA chief Taylor is hoping it will not be too much longer before the concept is rolled out throughout football.
"The more that it goes on that we don't use technology, the more perverse it's looking for football - being the major spectator game throughout the whole world as well as being the major participant game," he told Sky Sports.
"I don't think the crowd would mind it at all, it's in the best interests of the game and justice will be done. It's so important as to whether a goal is scored, that's the whole object of the game.
"People will say, and (UEFA president, Michel) Platini has said, that's why he wants to use those officials behind the goal and has done so. I don't see that as the way ahead and I don't see that as a job for somebody who wants to be a referee or an assistant referee.
"When you see how successfully it's been used in a game like rugby, league and union, as well as tennis and cricket, it's what the modern sporting spectator expects - in the interests of seeing that justice is done and the right result.
"Controversy is always going to be part of the game, but I think the sooner it comes in the better.
"I know people will say it's the thin edge of a wedge because the next point will be should it be a penalty, has a goal been scored, was it offside or not? That might be a debate for another day, but at least I think we should have that goal-line technology for starters.
"The technology is there and I see no reason why we should waste it any longer."
