The Men In Black: v Cobblers
Premiership referee Mr. Rob Styles from Hampshire gets the gig at the Sixfields, for the game between Northampton and Forest. He will be the 4th Prem ref we've had the privilege of this season, let's hope he's the first good one.
So far this campaign Mr. Styles has taken charge of 31 games. He's dished out an incredible total of 107 yellow cards and 13 red. He clearly loves the paper work!
He was involved in controversy last year, when he was dropped for one game after he wrongly awarded Chelsea a penalty at Anfield. He now knows that you never give penalties to the opposition at Anfield, even if they're nailed on.
Last time he took charge of a game involving the Reds, was all the way back in the 2004/5 season for the 2-2 home draw against Gillingham. He booked one player that day. Namely one Ross Gardner.
He will be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. M. Murphy and Mr. M. Tingey. The 4th official will be Mr. T. Kettle.
