Premier League referee Mr. Mark Clattenburg from sunny Tyne and Wear gets the gig for the clash of the East Midlands on Saturday, when Forest travel to Pride less Park to do battle with fierce rivals Derby County.

Mr. Clattenburg had the pleasure of refereeing the 2-0 home win over Coventry last season and had a decent game on that occasion. The previous campaign saw him take charge of the televised game at Loftus Road, when we battled for a 1-1 draw with QPR. He was involved in the controversial sending off of midfielder Radoslaw Majewski, who was given his marching orders for a rash tackle in the first half of the game.

So far this season, Mr. Clattenburg has taken charge of 19 games in which he’s dished out 55 yellow cards and 5 red.

He will be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. Harry Lennard and Mr. David Bryan. The fourth official will be Mr. Paul Tierney.
