The Men In Black: Donny Rovers

The Men In Black: Donny Rovers

Premiership referee Mr. Phil Dowd from sunny Staffordshire, gets the gig for the relegation battle at the City Ground on Boxing Day, between Forest and Donny Rovers.

This will be the second time this season that Mr. Dowd has had the privelege of taking charge of a game involving the Reds'. Last time out, it was the 1-1 home draw with Brum. In that game he booked 5 players, including our very own James Perch.

So far this season he's taken charge of 21 games, in which he's dished out 65 yellow cards and 4 red. He clearly loves the paperwork.

Card happy Phil will be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. D. C. Richards and Mr. M. Bull. The 4th official is Mr. D. Deadman.
