Robert Jones handed Saturday's trip to Nottingham Forest

Match Officials confirmed for game at The City Ground

8 February 2019

Referee: Robert Jones

Assistant Referees: Graham Kane and Matt Foley

Fourth Official: Brett Huxtable

This will be the Merseyside official's fourth game in charge of The Bees, having officiated us once in each of the past three seasons.

Promoted to the EFL list at the start of the 2016/17 season, Jones' first Championship appointment was our trip to Barnsley in April 2017. The game ended in a 1-1 draw; Florian Jozefzoon scoring the equaliser before Jota missed a second-half penalty. Last term, he took charge of our 1-0 win over Ipswich Town at Griffin Park, Neal Maupay scoring the only goal from the penalty spot following a foul on Sergi Canos.

His previous game this term was Thomas Frank's first in charge, as he showed Chris Mepham a red card in a 1-0 defeat at home to Bristol City. This campaign, Jones has shown 78 yellow cards, and that one red, in 25 matches across five competitions.

Nottingham Forest 2018/19
