Premiership referee Mr. Lee Probert from sunny Gloucestershire, gets the gig for the game at the Riverside between Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest this afternoon.

Mr. Probert had the privelege of officiating in two games involving the Reds’ last season and he didn’t do too badly in either. The 3-0 FA Cup win at Man City and the crucial 1-1 away draw at Barnsley, were important games for differing reasons last year. Hopefully today, he can put in a similar performance to his previous games involving Forest.

So far this season, Mr. Probert has proved a little card happy and in only 9 games, he’s dished out 32 yellow and 2 red cards.

He will be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. D. Richardson and Mr. R. Lewis. The 4th official will be Mr. Nigel ‘oh no not him again’ Miller.
