The Men In Black: Ipswich v Nottingham Forest

The Men In Black: Ipswich v Nottingham Forest

Former Premier League referee Mr. Andrew D'Urso from sunny Essex gets the gig for the nPower Championship game at Portman Road tonight, between Ipswich Town and Nottingham Forest.

It seems the Football League has it in for us Trickies, because we've already had to suffer Mr. D'Urso's misdemeanours once already this season. He took charge of the 2-1 defeat to Leeds Utd at Elland Road back in September and helped bring to an end, a run of 6 games without defeat. He disallowed a perfectly good Dexter Blackstock goal, amongst a catalogue of errors throughout that game. Last season, he took charge of the 1-0 away defeat at Derby. Whilst Forest helped bring about their own downfall in that match with a below par performance, D'Urso did little to help our cause. He sent off Marcus Tudgay and awarded a penalty in the latter stages of the game, just to add insult to injury.

So far this campaign, Mr. D'Urso has taken charge of 18 games, in which he's dished out 36 yellow cards and 4 red.

He will be ably assisted on the lines by Mr. Gary Evetts and Mr. Michael George. The fourth official is Mr. Michael Bull.
