Mr. Eddie Ilderton from sunny Tyne and Wear gets the gig for the nPower Championship game at the City Ground today between Nottingham Forest and the Saints of Southampton.

It will be the second time this season that Mr. Ilderton has had the pleasure of refereeing a game involving the Reds’. Unfortunately for us, the last time was a dull and dismal Tuesday night back in September when we got thumped 5-1 at Burnley. Mr. Ilderton booked one player that evening and it was our very own Luke Chambers.

So far this campaign, Mr. Ilderton has officiated in 23 games, in which he’s dished out 52 yellow cards and 2 red.

He will be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. Matthew Wilkes and Mr. Mark Scholes. The fourth official will be Mr. Anthony Tankard.
