The Men In Black: Forest v Leeds

The Men In Black: Forest v Leeds

Mr. Anthony Bates from sunny Staffordshire gets the gig, for the game between Forest and Leeds on Sunday (KO: 1.15pm).

It's the first home game of the season for the Reds' and it's live on the telly box as well. That means it's a trip to the barbers for Batesy, to ensure he looks his Sunday best for the cameras.

The last time Master Bates had the privelege of taking charge of a game involving Forest, it was the 1-0 away defeat to Coventry last season. He also took charge of the 4-2 home defeat to Watford earlier in the campaign, so he's not been much good to us of late.

He officiated in 36 games last season and dished out a whopping 106 yellow cards, but only the 1 red.

He'll be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. M. George and Mr. P. R. Mason. The 4th official is Mr. J. Waugh.

Lets hope he doesn't want to take centre stage on the TV.
