The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Rotherham United this weekend.

Nottingham Forest travel to Rotherham United on Saturday April 16 for the game at the New York Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Simon Hooper
Linesmen: Simeon Lucas and Kevin Mattocks
Fourth Official: Joe Simpson

Match Day referee Hooper has officiated two Forest games this season.

He has however already taken in 37 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 90 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Brighton and Hull on September 12 with a total of five yellows being shown. He also showed five yellows in the match between Charlton and Preston and then Brentford and Queens Park Rangers in October.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
