David Coote to take charge on Saturday

Match Officials confirmed for visit from The Royals

21 November 2019

Referee: David Coote

Assistant Referees: Peter Kirkup and Nick Hopton

Fourth Official: David Rock

Nottinghamshire FA referee David Coote will be the man in charge of Saturday's visit from Reading. 

Coote started refereeing as a 16-year-old before his promotion to the Football League list in 2010. In May 2014, Coote was the referee for the League One play-off Final at Wembley between Leyton Orient and Rotherham United.

We have lost only two of the 13 games which he has officiated, with six wins and five draws. He took charge of our 2-1 derby with over Fulham in 2014 and we have kept a clean sheet in each of the last four matches at Griffin Park under Coote. 

This season Coote has shown 32 yellow cards and one red in eight outings in the Premier League and Sky Bet Championship, including three during our trip to Deepdale in September. 

Reading 2019/20

191 fouls – 13th in Championship

23 yellow cards – 18th in Championship

1 red cards – 5th in Championship

With the away stand, central blocks and Ealing Road already sold out, the atmosphere should be electric on Saturday when Reading make the short trip to TW8. Ticket availability is also limited in the rest of the paddock so don’t delay, book your tickets now to avoid missing out.
