Premiership referee Mark Clattenburg from sunny Tyne and Wear, gets the gig for the nPower Championship game at the City Ground tonight, between Nottingham Forest and Leicester City.

Mr. Clattenburg has been involved in his fair share of controversial decisions over the years, but he’s one of the favourites with the big wigs running the game. This will be the second time this season that Mr. C. has had the privilege of officiating in a game involving the Reds’, the last time out being the 1-1 draw at QPR, in a match that saw him issue a straight red to Radoslaw Majewski in the first half of the game.

So far this campaign, he has refereed 36 games, in which he’s dished out a whopping 115 yellow cards and 8 red.

He will be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. S. Beck and Mr. S. Child. The 4th official is Mr. K. Wright.
