Mr. Craig Pawson from sunny South Yorkshire gets the gig for the nPower Championship match at the City Ground on Saturday, between Nottingham Forest and Reading.

Following the controversial and joke of a performance from supposed Premier League referee Mark Halsey last week, Mr. Pawson can only be an improvement. He’s one of the Football League’s up and coming newbies and as such, he’s only taken charge of 6 Championship games this season. There are no records of him refereeing a game involving the Reds’.

So far this campaign, Mr. Pawson has taken charge of 26 games, in which he’s dished out 65 yellow cards and 3 red.

He will be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. R. Ellis and Mr. G. S. Hambling. The 4th official will be Mr. M. Heywood.
