'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Poll To Referee At City Ground

The match officials have been announced for both legs of the Playoff semi finals. The 1st leg will be officiated by Mr. Nigel Miller from County Durham. So far this season, he has dished out 105 yellow cards and 10 red, in 39 games.

Mr. Miller has taken charge of two of the Reds games this term. They were both home wins, 2-0 in the FAC against Salisbury and the 4-0 win over Chesterfield.

Hold on to your hats folks, because it isn't all good news. The 4th official for this game is our old friend, Kevin Friend. If you need a reminder, he's the guy who took charge of the 5-0 humiliation at Oldham, sending off Sammy Clingan. Ahh, yes, that Kevin Friend.

Graham Poll the controversial World Cup referee will take charge of the 2nd leg at the City Ground. He rose to prominence on the world footballing stage after his performance in the Croatia vs Australia match at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, due to what was called 'a series of high-profile errors', most notably, he incredibly booked the same player (Josip Simunic) three times before sending the player off. Poll has now retired from refereeing international tournament finals, citing his error in the match as the reason.

So far this season, he has dished out 143 yellow cards and 10 red in 44 games. Keep your hands in your pockets, eh Graham.

He is a decent ref, so lets hope he has a good day next Friday.
