Mr. A. R. Hall from the sunny West Midlands, gets the gig for the City Ground clash between Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace on Tuesday night.

You have to go all the way back to the distant past of 2007, to find the last time Mr. Hall took charge of a game involving the Reds’. That day saw us fight it out, in an ill tempered 2-2 draw away at Bristol Rovers, in which Grant Holt was given his marching orders in the 85th min for his second bookable offence of the game. Rovers coach Paul Trollope, was also given his marching orders by the over zealous ref.

So far this season, he’s taken charge of 35 games, in which he’s dished out a whopping 141 yellow cards and 7 red. God help us all!

He’ll be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. D. S. Bond and Mr. D. Drysdale. The 4th official is Mr. S. J. Cook.
