Premiership referee Mr. Michael Dean from the Wirral, gets the gig for this final nPower Championship game of the season at the City Ground on Saturday, where Nottingham Forest will take on Leicester City.

This crunch encounter sees both sides in with a shout of making the Championship Playoffs, so the appointment of Mr. Dean should ensure a decent performance from the officials.

The last time Mr. Dean had the pleasure of refereeing a game involving the Reds’ was back in 2011 for the 1st leg Playoff semi final against Swansea. We drew that game 0-0, despite Mr. Dean appearing to do us a massive favour in sending off Swans defender Neil Taylor in the second minute of the match.

So far this campaign, Mr. Dean has officiated in 35 games, in which he’s dished out a whopping 130 yellow cards and 4 red.

He will be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. Jake Collin and Mr. Lee Betts. The fourth official will be Mr. Lee Collins.
