Premier League referee Mr. Lee Probert gets the gig for the 3rd round FA Cup tie at the City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday, between Manchester City and Nottingham Forest.

So far this season Mr. Probert has taken charge of 18 games, in which he’s dished out 40 yellow cards and 2 red.

The last time he had the pleasure of a game involving the Reds’, was way back in 2006 in the 1-0 win at Northampton. That was a feisty affair, in which Mr. Probert was kept busy with not only 4 bookings, but also the controversial sending off of Cobblers striker Scott McGleish.

Mr. Probert will be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. D. J. Cann and Mr. M. E. Murphy, as well as over 6,000 Forest fans. The fourth official is Mr. N. S. Miller.
